As reported by the local newspaper, an Mi-8MTV crashed in Divulje Air Base on July 21st, at 23:40 local (21:40 UTC). Causes of the accident are unknown, but it is speculated that the main rotor failed during landing a few meters from the ground and the crew lost control. The helicopter tilted and fell on its port side, loosing its rotor and tail assembly in the hit. The crew jumped out of the helicopter before it hit the ground, with three having only minor injuries and the fourth, who went along for the ride but was not a part of the flight crew, was transported to the hospital where he is recovering nicely.

The helicopter was returning to its home base from a medical flight, transporting a boy who was seriously injured in a car accident to another hospital.

No plane, no gain.
