Two Killed in Helicopter Crash in Central Russia

Two people have become victims of a privately owned Mil Mi-2 Hoplite light multi-purpose helicopter crash landing in Russia's Ivanovo region on Saturday, November 17.

      "The helicopter crashed on takeoff. As a result, two people - the helicopter's pilot and a passenger - born in 1956 and 1974, died," local police reported. No people were hurt on the ground and no buildings were damaged in the incident.

      The Mi-2 is a lightly armored transport helicopter. Its production mainly took place in Poland and completely ceased in 1985.

      Earlier on Saturday, another helicopter crash took place in west Siberia’s Omsk Region, when a UTair Mil Mi-8 Hip transport helicopter carrying two crew and 20 passengers crashed on landing. Eight people were injured and no casualties were reported.
