Groups of rescuers recommence search for MI-6 helicopter lost on Taimyr

On Friday the rescuers of the Emergency Situations Ministry of Russia, who are staying at the Dickson settlement recommenced the search for the MI-6 helicopter radio communication with the crew of which was lost on Wednesday night. As the administration of the Dickson district reported, the search is being carried out simultaneously from two helicopters which are flying over the tundra on parallel courses at the minimally allowed altitude in constant contact with each other.

The Dickson-based staff of the rescue expedition decided to make utmost use of the perceptible improvement of the local weather conditions during the day. But the Dickson weather forecasters do not rule it out that strong wind and wet snow may return to the area of the search within the next few hours. Precisely such conditions made it impossible to seek the helicopter during the whole past night.

The helicopter which left Norilsk on Wednesday and then disappeared approximately 300 kilometres north-east of Dickson carried 8 crewmen and 12 workers and engineers of the geological expedition who were going to work on the Arctic island of Bolshevik in the Kara Sea. The helicopter did not arrive at the final point of the route at the control time.
