The wreckage of the Russian Mi-8 helicopter was found in the sea near Barentsburg (Svalbard archipelago) at a depth of about 200 meters, reports TASS Post rescue center in northern Norway.


Russian mining village Barentsburg.

The wreckage of the Russian Mi-8 helicopter, which was missing from October 26, was found at the bottom of the sea at a point located in the 1,2 nautical mile (2,2 km) northeast of Cape Heer at a depth of 209 m. Center for Northern Norway, completed. The police will be responsible for the operation to search for the bodies of the victims of the disaster,
the report said.

Recall that the Mi-8 helicopter of the Converse Avia airline, carrying eight Russians - five crew members and three employees of the Arctic and Antarctic Research Institute - October 26 flew from the conserved village of Pyramid to the mining village of Barentsburg. The car was supposed to land at the heliport located at Cape Heer.

In 15: 04 local time (16: 04 Moscow time) the connection with the helicopter was lost. A Norwegian rescue center was notified of his loss. A search and rescue operation began in which two helicopters, patrol airplanes, several ships, ships of the Coast Guard of Norway, volunteers on boats and a mountain rescue platoon of the Russian state trust Arktikugol began.

In the Norwegian center they stated that the people on board most likely did not manage to leave the helicopter before it crashed, and that their bodies could be carried away over a considerable distance.

On Saturday, the Russian IL-76 Emergency Situations Ministry delivered specialists and necessary high-tech equipment to Spitsbergen, including the Falcon remote-controlled underwater vehicles and side-scan sonars. Rescuers were equipped with compressor equipment, motor boats, diving equipment necessary for work under water.

      In mind, it is necessary to wear crew suits and passengers immediately in safety suits, on the ground yet. True it's expensive
      and even the bourgeoisie don’t do that, but still it’s necessary.

        The bourgeois do differently, use the Mi-14.
        What would not hurt Russia to do, especially for such latitudes, in the ice-free waters of the Gulf Stream.




        Mi-14 (product "140", a B-14 machine, according to NATO codification: Haze - "Fog") is a coast-based marine multi-purpose amphibious helicopter developed at the Design Bureau of M. L. Mil.
        Serial production was organized at the end of 1973 at factory No. 387 in Kazan. In 1973-1986, 273 Mi-14 helicopters were manufactured

        My sincere condolences to the families and the near death.
        A few words about:

        While the screw is spinning, the car goes down in autorotation, like a parachute. But if the gearbox jammed, it turns over with the screw down ... Then, the rotating screw cuts everything that jumps out of the cab. Therefore, on the combat Ka-50 / 52 there is a system of ejection of propellers during the bailout of the crew. On the Mi-8 this is not. Therefore, it remains to seek the body.

        but could it be above the sea to fly on turntables adapted to this? Those who do not drown ...
        Do you offer Mi-14 to return to operation? So it seems that they have already decided to revive these machines for naval base anti-aircraft operations ... They will buy oil workers, polar explorers - which means they will also have floating turntables ...

        Unfortunately, life suits are designed to last about 5 hours safely in cold water. This of course enhances the chances of being saved, but not a panacea.

            But what can the Northern Fleet wish for? - Indeed, to lift the helicopter and the bodies of the dead, again, Norwegian deep-sea divers will have to be invited.

    Something praised autorotation is of little help. Is it really impossible to come up with rescue tools for helicopters? Far from ordinary people fly on them.

      Alexey, I myself have been thinking about this problem for a long time. What is in planes, what is in helicopters. They make the rotor blades that are being shot, to this + a parachute and a knockout door. When you fall, it is better to kill with a parachute (there is a chance to survive) than to fall without it. In airplanes, mount a parachute and a kick panel into the seat on top. True, how much will such a plane and a ticket for it cost?

        The blades shoot back at the Kamovskys. The Milevskys do not bother saving people. Scare them with a shot and they will do everything right.

          How simple it is for you! But nothing, what exactly Milevtsy back in the 60s conducted tests to shoot the blades on the Mi-4? By the way, Garnayev experienced this mode! This is the answer. but in essence: I offer my condolences to all who knew these guys! Everlasting memory! You always want to believe in a miracle, but there are no miracles in the Arctic! Once again, condolences.

        hi Helicopter flights are usually carried out at low altitudes, there is very little chance of using a parachute (there’s just not enough reaction and time), and the ejected benches (which are alongside the Mi-8) have not yet been invented ... request

          Nikolay, I just love science fiction, I want to dream. Yes, it’s difficult with helicopters, but with planes? Remember the episode from the cartoon about Captain Vrungel? When Vrungel and Lom flew over the place where they needed to be?

    The maximum time a person stays in cold water. Depends on body weight and its psychological state. On average: + 2-3 degrees - 15 minutes, + 5-15 degrees - 4 hours, + 0-2 degrees - 5-8 minutes. There were cases when these indicators increased at times. Trained "walruses" - athletes who are not psychologically burdened by the stress of survival, knowing that they will not be abandoned - I can withstand a longer stay in sports.
    The human body reacts differently to mortal fear - some turn pale (blood vessels narrow, the brain does not get oxygen, people panic), others turn red (blood vessels are dilated, the oxygen supply to the brain increases sharply), the person does not panic, is actively looking for a way out of this situation, which increases the chance of survival.

    It is unfortunate that I still hoped that he made an emergency landing on land and everyone flying on it was alive.
