MOSCOW, October 16 (Itar-Tass) —— The privately-owned Robinson-44 helicopter that crashed in the Tula region was flying to Voronezh, a spokeswoman for the Moscow transport investigation department of the Russian Investigations Committee told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
“According to preliminary information, the private helicopter piloted by Sergei Dykin took off from the settlement of Bunkovo at about 14:00 Moscow time and was bound for Voronezh’s Plyazh,” the spokeswoman said. “The helicopter crashed some 40 kilometers way from the settlement of Muravlyanka, Tula region, due to yet unknown reasons. The pilot died in the crash.”
A pre-investigation check has been launched.
