MOSCOW, September 12 (Itar-Tass) -A helicopter Mi-8 owned by AeroGeo company made a rough landing in the area of the mouth of the Khuringa river in the Krasnoyarsk region on Thursday afternoon local time. The helicopter performed a flight from the settlement of Podkamennaya to Tunguska Tenep with nine people on board.
