“So far nothing is known about the fate of the people on board the helicopter", - said the aviation services of the region.
The wreckage of the aircraft was found almost at the top of the mountain, at a high-rise about 950 meters above sea level. Last night and Friday morning, the weather conditions in the Ostroy area were good, Kamchathydromet said.
"The wind was up to 4 m / s all night, it is clear, the visibility is over 50 km. However, if we take into account that the height of Mount Ostroy is about 1,000 m, then the cloud cover most likely covered the top”, - the department said.
We will remind that earlier it was reported about a hard landing of the Ka-27 helicopter in Kamchatka. On board it were, according to preliminary data, three people.
