MOSCOW, October 22. /TASS/. Search for a Mi-8 helicopter that went missing in the republic of Tyva, East Siberia, on October 10, continues on Wednesday, the Siberian centre of the Russian Ministry for Emergency Situations reports.
“Four aircraft and six ground teams will be engaged in the search today,” its report said.
Over the past few days five aircraft, including two Mi-8 helicopters of the ministry’s Siberian centre, have examined more than 3,000 square kilometers, while 12 ground teams have searched an area of 409 square kilometers.
There could be 13 people on board the missing helicopter, the government of Tyva said on Monday. Earlier reports said there had been 12 people on board the ill-fated helicopter.
The search and rescue operation has involved 885 people assisted by 135 units of hardware.
The radio contact with the helicopter was lost when it was on the way between the communities of Sorug and Kyzyl, located 270 kilometres away from each other. Specialists on board the helicopter were making aerial survey of snow levels.
