    Helis, August 10, 2018 - According an official video, the new Mi-172A2 helicopter performing final tests suffered a hard landing last August 3rd.

    Apparently during the test flight which involved one of the two engines to be turned off the pilot lowered the aircraft nose too much and the main rotor blades hit the ground.
