The captain who lost control of a Boeing 737 that subsequently crashed in Kazan, Russia, on November 17 may have been operating with a false pilot certificate, according to Associated Press reports on the investigation. The aircraft was executing a go-around when it entered a near-vertical dive before the impact that killed all 50 people on board.
