Military aircraft MIG-31 crashed because of a control system failure, Tengrinews.kz reports citing Air Defense Commander in Chief Aleksander Sorokin.

"According to the navigator Major Galimzyanov, the aircraft started spinning into the left at the height of 3 thousand meters: this was for sure a control system failure. That means that the controls got stuck in the position of the left rolling motion. Such spinning is accompanied by alternating loads and the planes goes into a sharp nose dive at an angle of 80-90 degrees. We defined from the crater on the ground that the plane indeed hit the ground at an angle of around 90 degrees," Sorokin said at the briefing.

He said that the plane was on warranty maintenance. The warranty period was 2 years. "Of course, the plant that performed the warranty maintenance is liable. It will have to reimburse the damages," Sorokin said.

The military plane MIG-31 of the military department 50185 of the Defense Ministry crashed during a training flight on April 23, 2013 at 10:41 p.m. Equipment failure was the main reason of the aircraft's crash. The Defense Ministry's press-service reported that the aircraft underwent an overhaul in Russia on December 31, 2012. It was on warranty maintenance and flew only 42 hours after the overhaul. The crew ejected themselves from the plane before the crash. Commander pilot Colonel Marat Yedigeev died and aeronavigator Major Ruslan Galimzyanov was hospitalized with injuries.
