Ace recovery of the guys inside the copter,
good on the rescuers, :D:D
but what a strong helicopter, how long did it take to stop its death throes?

Bravo Zulu indeed, well done by the lads on the ground. Glad everyone is safe.
Does anyone have the back story, what caused the bird to drop out of the sky like that? :confused:

To see those engines keep on putting out power while the helicopter is laying on its side in pieces is just amazing. The Russians build some tough pieces of equipment.:D
