Helicopter crash. Aircraft is beyond repair

The helicopter that fell on Southern Inylchek, is beyond repair. The General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Kyrgyz Republic informed 24.kg news agency.

These are reportedly the preliminary results of the examination.

Meanwhile, own sources informed 24.kg news agency that the crashed aircraft could not be lifted because the resources of the remaining helicopters in Kyrgyzstan were over.

Recall, on July 9, the helicopter carried out a search operation and went off the radar. The press service of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Kyrgyz Republic specified that the helicopter of the Air Defense Forces of the Kyrgyz Republic Mi-8 MTV crashed during a rescue operation on the South Inylchek. The helicopter fell to the left side during landing because of the strong side wind. As a result of the crash, six people were injured — three servicemen and three tourists.
