ROSTOV-ON-DON, July 28 (Itar-Tass) - The police have detained the pilot of an An-2, which had a hard landing earlier on Sunday, and who disappeared from the site near the Rostov region’s town of Shakhty.
“According to the preliminary information, he did not have documents permitting a flight,” press service of the local police said. “He could not explain his escape from the site.”
