RAW: Pilot killed in Mi-28N helicopter crash in central Russia

A Mi-28N helicopter crashed while performing a demonstration flight Sunday at the Dubrovichi testing range in central Russia’s Ryazan Region, killing one of the two pilots.

Russian Air Force Commander-in-Chief Viktor Bondarev said the fatal crash was caused by a hydraulic system failure. Further investigation is still underway.

Since June, at least four Russian warplanes have crashed, including two MiG-29, one Su-24 jet fighters and one Tu-95 strategic bomber.
