In the Irkutsk region, the Mi-8 helicopter of the Angara Airlines, carrying 9 people, crashed.

In addition, the helicopter transported tons of ammonite explosives 1,9 for blasting to eliminate the ice jam.

The helicopter that crashed on Monday in the Irkutsk region with rescuers of the Ministry of Emergency Situations on board could have exploded, Sergey Aleksandrov, the chief of the emergency services of the Irkutsk region, told reporters by telephone. “The flash was seen from the second helicopter, and at first it was interpreted as an explosion during the flood control works. Then they noticed that it was out of the way and compared this fact with the loss of the helicopter,” said Alexander Alexandrov. He stressed that it is too early to say whether a helicopter exploded in the air or when it hit the ground during a crash.

The fact that communication with the Mi-8 helicopter, which monitored the flood situation, lost communication, journalists were previously told in the Information Administration of the EMERCOM of Russia. At present, the search and rescue operation has been suspended, since it is already night in the Irkutsk Region and it will resume during daylight hours.

As a result of the blasting, the ice jam was eliminated, there was a steady decrease in the water level in the area of ​​the Preobrazhenka settlement, the Emergencies Ministry said.

    Died to those killed in a plane crash

    Down, down ... infinity is carried away ...
    Shouting: "Hold !!!" And in response: "I can not !!!"
    And before my eyes only faces sweep
    All to whom you remain in debt ...

    The memory will return all instants of old ...
    A pretty face that I could love so much ...
    "To survive ... I will fulfill all desires ...
    Everything, exactly everything ... No ... know how to forgive ... "

    “Mom, I'm scared, answer what happens?”
    “You know the prayer, son, pray ...”
    The look is madly saying goodbye to the child ...
    "God! Let me, but not him! Answer me !!!"

    “You know, I remember all the meetings, all the little ones ...”
    “Just don’t cry ... Still ahead ...”
    “And daughter’s birthday, Olenka ...”
    That one, the very first ... Forgive us ... sorry ...

    Ten seconds ... Life is immensely short,
    If you could fly at that moment ...
    Mother’s look and smile that meek,
    The first “yes”, happiness, joy — again a glare ...

    Lightning, lightning, thunder prevail here ...
    I wish I woke up with my eyes open ...
    Who will stop and who will prevent? ..
    How to return everything? Is it all right? Back !!!
    Inhale — emptiness ... only a cry of hopelessness
    Echo melts, announcing all the ways ...
    Quiet rain on the window ... the point of the story ...
    I believe ... I love ... do not forget and ... I'm sorry ...

    Rest in peace!

    2 tons of cargo + a lot of people, no authorization will save here, because they probably didn’t fly 5 meters away ... well, if the breakdown of the swashplate breaks and, as a result, the blades overlap and uncontrollable fall ... maybe the pilots have nothing to do with it. In any case, this is the loss and loss of human lives and probably one of the best .. ETERNAL MEMORY!

    Not far from us, it crashed somewhere ... I don’t know about the reasons, but several years ago we had an An-12 or An-24 airplane near Ust-Ilimsk, I don’t remember .. I couldn’t reach the airport, there wasn’t enough fuel , the reason for this was the fact that the crew refused to refuel in Ust-Kut because of "sorry for the money" ... We flew in with cargo, there were no survivors.

    If you saw a flash - it means there was an explosion on board. I can assume that the guys cracked ice - a charge with a burning OS is dropped from a small height onto the surface. According to the RPR, the cord length is 15 cm (if the memory does not change) - this is 15 seconds to move away from the place of the explosion. Two options are possible: either the charge detonated from an impact on ice and the wave overturned the aircraft, or there was a “backache” of the OS and the charge worked in the hands (this happens well very rarely. At the beginning of the 70’s starter, I shortened three fingers when I inserted it by stupidity burning OS in the CD, and then take it yes "shot" ...)
    Any work with explosives is a risk. And then there was also a helicopter, and with ammonite. Sorry guys.

    Quite a strange situation, the article says that the helicopter was monitoring, that is, experts on board evaluated the flood situation. At the same time, there were two tons of ammonite in the helicopter.

    You will swear at me, but here (as is often the case with us in the Ministry of Emergencies) there is a clear violation of the instructions and PTB.
