Narrative:
It was snowing in Moscow as the Vologodskiye Airlines Yakovlev 40 was prepared for departure. It was to conduct a charter flight to Kiev for the company Aeroteks. Snow was removed from the fuselage, wings and tail section, but de-icing fluid was not applied to the airplane. Planned departure time was 08:00 but the passengers arrived late. At 08:28, just within the 30-minute time slot, the crew asked for permission to start the engines. The crew then apparently tried to leave in a hurry, starting to taxi without permission and taxiing at a speed of 60 km/h, despite the warning that the taxiways were slippery. When still turning onto the main runway the crew already reported ready for takeoff. Flaps were erroneously selected at 11 degrees instead of 20 degrees. At a speed of 165km/h during takeoff the began to rotate the aircraft. It attained a 13-degree angle of attack and climbed to a height of 8-10 metres when it stalled. The airplane rolled left and struck the ground with a 60-65 degree bank angle and crashed.
