Eighteen people died in Russian Federation on Saturday morning when a helicopter crashed on its way to an oil station in the north Siberian region of Krasnoyarsk, local television network RT reported.
The helicopter, which belonged to UTair, a Russian airline, crashed Saturday morning in the north of Krasnoyarsk region, eastern Siberia, near the Vankor oil pumping station.
The second helicopter was undamaged and landed safely, the committee said.
UTair, one of Russia's largest airlines, operates an extensive fleet of helicopters serving Siberian oil fields as well as fixed-wing flights within Russian Federation and to worldwide destinations, mostly in the former Soviet republics.
The transport ministry said the Mi-8 helicopter, reportedly taking workers to an oilfield, went down when it collided with machinery carried by another helicopter soon after take-off.
It added that the pilot was born in 1985 and was trained at the Omsk Aviation School in southwestern Siberia. The criminal investigators of the Main Directorate of Criminalistics of Russia's Investigative Committee were sent to the scene, the committee said in a statement.
The Mi-8 helicopter crashed in the Krasnoyarsk region of Siberia.
Both black boxes of the helicopter were found, a source in regional emergency services was quoted by Sputnik news agency as saying, adding that the recorders were in a satisfactory condition.
The Mi-8 crashed to the ground seconds after takeoff and exploded in an inferno in the Krasnoyarsk region of Russian Federation.
