YAKUTSK, November 1./TASS/. The plane that went missing in Yakutia, Siberia, on a mission to monitor deer pastures has been found. Its pilot was killed, and the passenger was injured, a law enforcement source told Tass on Sunday.
The source said the private plane went missing in Yakutia’s Olenyok district late on Saturday. The pilot and the injured passenger were airlifted to the settlement of Olenyok.
The head of the district administration, Alexander Ivanov, said the plane had been for three weeks flying over local deer pastures in connection with migration of wild deer from the neighbouring Krasnoyarsk region.
The task of the crew was to protect and count domestic deer. The plane belonged to a private entrepreneur, and was for the first time recruited this year for work to monitor and count deer.
It went missing late on Saturday, 220 kilometers northwest of Olenek. According to early reports, it made an emergency landing.
