    Human life is priceless.

      I agree. The helicopter is a machine, the iron ... and the pilots are people! Probably the young one could not cope with the gust of wind ... I think the human factor is pure water ...

            In 1979-1988 - and the helicopter was far from new to be seen. Although there is a new technique - it beats sometimes - there are many factors. Short circuit, malfunction - yes you never know.

            in the same USA for 3 months of 2012 3 fighters crashed

            They don’t feel sorry for them - they beat high. The main thing is for us to have as few repetitions of such disasters as possible. And even more so - human victims.

              I allow myself to disagree with you. Neither + nor - I will not put it.

              But be that as it may, and whatever they may be, they are people too. This is one thing in war. And when a military plane crashes, a helicopter in peacetime and people die, no matter what they are - it's bad, these are living people.

              First of all, he is MAN. Living person. And then anything.

              Like a hole. From a technical point of view - Hole. But first of all, she is a HOLE, and then anything.

      Mi-8MT since 1977 in a series. A fighter proven by both time and wars. What doubts can be in him.

      I join everyone. People are alive - this is the main thing.

      There is a war going on in Afghanistan, so the comparison is not entirely correct.

      Well, this question should be addressed to the original source, here is only a reprint from another resource .... but, in general, journalists do not bother too much ... here is an example: "According to some reports, the helipad of the Ministry of Defense is located in Garovka, writes Rossiyskaya Gazeta." it is enough to look at the Yandex maps - not a platform, but a full-fledged airfield and "turntables" can be seen with the naked eye

        Yes you are right. There are many turntables and planes. There is no secrecy long since the advent of satellites. Only if you build underground bases.
