– all the airplane equipment were working.
– the captain was well speaking Russian language. There were people, especially Russians, underlining the scenario that the communication between the control tower and captain was bad, the captain could not fully understand and therefore could not follow the instructions.
– the last Smolensk weather forecast was not received by the captain. He seemed not to receive the last update weather information and investigators mentioned that only the previous forecast weather was on board.
