MOSCOW, September 13 (Itar-Tass) —— A Mi-8 helicopter has made an emergency landing in the Irkutsk Region due to a short circuit. Nobody was hurt, a source of the press service of the Russian Emergencies Ministry's regional department told Itar-Tass by telephone.
The incident occurred in the Ust-Kut district, 62 km away from Ust-Kut, at about 12:15 local time. The UTair airline helicopter carried people and equipment to an oil well site from Ust-Kut. Aboard were 24 people, including three crewmembers, and also 516 kilogrammes of cargoes.
Technical specialists, who arrived by another Mi-8 at the site, determined the cause of the trouble – a short circuit in the identification system.
The Mi-8 is in good working order. The crew captain asked for permission to return to Ust-Kut, the source said. However, the passengers will be carried by another helicopter.
