Summary: The airliner went into a nearly vertical dive and crashed onto the runway and disintegrated, after attempting to land a second time. The aircraft hit the runway and burst into flames. The pilot in command, in executing a go-around, apparently placed the plane in an excessive nose high attitude, stalling the plane. Inexperienced crew, poor flight safety standards at the Tatarstan air company and lack of proper control over crew training.
