On the day of the An-26 plane crash in Kamchatka, a trainee dispatcher was working on the tower. The girl got a job a few weeks before the tragedy.

As the REN TV, it was the trainee who was in touch with the pilots and was engaged in coordination during the descent in the Palana area. It is reported that the trainee's actions did not affect the crash. The investigation is considering three versions of what happened - crew error, bad weather and possible aircraft malfunction.

During the maneuver dispatcher indicatedthat the plane has deviated from the course by 30 degrees to the left, and goes at a dangerous altitude and speed - about 340 km / h. The crew reported a descent to an altitude of 600 meters, but did not report on the occupation of this altitude and did not request further descent. After that, the An-26 was put on a course of 140 degrees and followed until the crash. Experts suggest that the crew was completely disoriented and did not receive information from the controller. 

 Plane crash of An-26, which followed the route Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky - Palana, occurred on July 6. Rescuers, divers and representatives of the IAC worked on the spot. Fragments of the bodies of all the victims found at the crash site.
