Albanian president arrived with this helicopter. Sadly it crashed in the Adriatic sea just 21 minutes after takeoff from Tirana on July 16, 2006. Former Albanian Deputy Prime Minister Gramoz Pashko (51) and five others, including his son Ruben (24), were killed in the accident. The helicopter was transporting Mr. Pashko to Italy due to a coma he had fell after a diving accident in Himara.

This helicopter crashed in the Adriatic sea, on July 16th, 2006 costing the life of 6 people. This is one of the only pictures around the net showing ZA-HOV. Our prayers go to the victims and their families.
