On [Ivano]-[Frankovshchine] with the fall of helicopter perished 2 people

On January 21, in The [bogorodchanskiy] region of [Ivano]- Frank region as a result of the fall of this particular helicopter perished two people. At 9:35 the helicopter of Eurocopter AS 350 departed from the airport of the Uzhgorods to airport Ivano Frankovschine. At 12:27 the crew of air vessel did not make contact with the airport Ivano Frankovschine. At 13:30 was set in motion the coordination center
of search and rescuing of civil aviation and the search for helicopter along the flight course is immediately organized.
About 17:35 helicopter they found - near the populated area Ofbogorodchany of Ivano Frankovschine region - it encountered the earth and caught fire.
Aboard were located two crew members, which perished on the spot catastrophe. Commander of air vessel - commercial pilot of the 3rd class Hertz P.O by the age of 46 years; copilot - commercial pilot of the 3rd class Anopko S.V, by the age of 26 years.

The helicopter, which flew along the route Uzhgorod - Ivano Frankovschine, suffered wreck not far from the village of Gorokholino.
To complete emergency landing in Ivano Frankovschine airport it they did not permit because of the fog. Helicopter made the first landing for 60 kilometers from the provincial center, then it took off and soon it fell. First in the place of incident the local peasants, who noted clouds of thick smoke, came running. According to the evidence of eyewitnesses, the fragments dispersed to tens of meters. Transport procuratorship explains at the given moment of the circumstance of emergency.
The killed pilots lived in the Transcarpathian region, and helicopter belonged to Kiev private company. One of the preliminary versions of consequence - error of pilot. Probably, crew wanted to go around electric power line, but it was hooked on the wires.
Many thanks to Bob Kerr for compiling and forwarding this report, and my regrets that the photographs will not paste over for some reason
