Human factor caused the Mi-8T helicopter crash outside the Krasnoufimsk town
Human factor caused the Mi-8T helicopter crash outside the Krasnoufimsk town, Russia's Sverdlovsk region, on February 22, press secretary of the Interior Troops department of the Urals military district Vsevolod Fedenko told Itar-Tass on Monday. According to the investigation, the helicopter’s pilot lost control of the aircraft due to bad weather - snowstorm and strong wind when he was making a landing manoeuvre. “The investigation was conducted for a long time because the helicopter was heavily deformed during the crash and it was difficult to determine the possible technical malfunctions,” Fedenko said. According to him, “An expert examination has revealed that the aircraft was in full order.” The Mi-8T helicopter crashed at the approach to Krasnoufimsk on February 22. The aircraft fell on a snowfield and broke into parts. Rescuers found four victims among the wreckage – a pilot and three passengers. They were rushed to the Yekaterinburg regional hospital on board another helicopter. The crashed Mi-8T belonged to the Interior Troops and was heading to the Krasnoufimsk district hospital to take a patient from there and transport him to Yekaterinburg.
