The Mi-2 helicopter was brought from the lakeshore to the Oek airbase for technical expert examination
The Mi-2 helicopter that crashed in the Lake Baikal water area two weeks ago was brought from the lakeshore to the Oek airbase for technical expert examination, Andrei Korovin, the deputy director of the territorial council of ROSTO (Russian Defence Sport and Technical Organisation) that owned the aircraft told Itar-Tass. Experts of the flight safety inspectorate of the Defence Ministry will disassemble the helicopter into units at the airbase in order to determine their operability at the moment of the crash. The specialists will familiarise themselves with the onboard recording altimeter data, as well as watch video recording of the condition of the aircraft made by divers of the Emergency Situations Ministry right after finding the helicopter at a depth of 44 metres on the lake bottom. They will also study the results of forensic medical expert examination of bodies of the killed pilots Ivan Yakovets and Vladimir Frolov. The Angara-Baikal transport prosecutor’s office is conducting the investigation into the crash. It instituted criminal proceedings under Article 263 part two of the Criminal Code (violation of safety rules while operating transport vehicles). Several versions of the tragedy are now being considered, including a piloting error, technical failure or external factors, such as a collision with a bird in the air.
