KEMEROVO, August 1. /TASS/. The Russian Emergencies Ministry plans to use unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) to search for the An-2 aircraft that lost contact on Sunday while flying from Berdsk to Krasnoyarsk, the press service of the ministry’s main regional department said on Monday.
"We currently plan to use unmanned aerial vehicles in the search for the An-2. The search operation continues in the Krapivinsky district (Kemerovo Region). Russian Emergencies Ministry’s helicopters are ready to take off in Krasnoyarsk and Khakassia," the press service said adding that 80 people are currently involved in the search operation.
It was earlier reported that An-2 with three people onboard lost contact on Sunday after it set off from Berdsk to Krasnoyarsk. A group of rescuers examined the territory of the Krapivinsky district. Eyewitnesses said they saw the aircraft in the afternoon. However, the Emergencies Ministry said it is hard to say whether they saw the lost An-2.
