An inspection of the aircraft after landing in Simferopol showed three tyres had been damaged, the landing gear had glass embedded.
The occurrence aircraft remained on the ground for about 19 hours, then departed for the return flight S7-264.
One Russian Aviation Source reported the crew computed takeoff performance using a takeoff weight 15 tons below the real weight.
Another Russian Aviation Source claimed the crew inadvertently entered Zero Fuel Weight instead of Takeoff Weight.
