Where else can it be possible? A Russian helicopter Mi-8 has fallen and now lying on the height of 4800m and nobody can evacuate it …
P.S. All the pilots survived.

Everything just look so beautiful.
Dear Author! Whether will You be so kind to place here a source reference?!..
By the way.. Great view! What about ammor? Arms, missiles, machine guns etc..
Oh! I see..paraplan.ru …Excuse me for my blindness…
Wow what a bad way to end a day. At least the pilots are alright. I am curious as to why they can not salvage the chopper..? That’s a lot of money to just let lay in the snow. Well thanks for the picture uploads…
4800 m is a lot of climbing to do and that’s a lot of weight to lift that only an Mi-26 could lift, but air density decreases with altitude and so does engine power, so it’s service ceiling is just 4600 m, so no go. Also it probably isn’t recoverable, so not worth the trouble.
It’s their own fault.
Service ceiling: 4,500 m (14,765 ft)
They are 300 meters above it!
These are good helicopters, someone screwed up. Great pictures, as usual.
“Aviation, in and of itself, is not inherently dangerous. But to an even greater degree than the sea, is terribly unforgiving of any carelessness, incapacity, or neglect.”
One less aircrft for military, one more relic for treasure hunters
I don’t buy it. Fake?
Whether these are images of a real crash or of a fake remote control helicopter crash, they’re still visually very stunning and impactful
So it turns out they sent an ex-military now commercial crew up there to rescue the poor Mi-8 and another crash-landed helicopter, Mountain Rescue’s Ka-27. Both machines were hauled down successfully using a Mi-26
