Macedonia marks 15 years since the helicopter crash near Blace


Eleven peacekeepers returning from the ALTEA mission in Bosnia and Herzegovina died on January 12, 2008 after an army Mi-17 helicopter crashed around noon in the village of Blace near Katlanovo. The helicopter crashed just 50 meters from the last houses in the village.

In conditions of reduced visibility, due to the fog, the helicopter started the procedure for landing at Alexander the Great airport.

The terrible fall of the army helicopter was preceded by an explosion. There were no casualties among the locals. No one survived the accident. The commemoration of the fatal accident will be held at noon on Thursday.
