According to a Russian source, UTAir has partially resumed Mil Mi-26T flights. On December 20, the operator grounded its fleet of heavy twins for tail-boom inspections after a fatal accident in the Khanty Mansi region–one of UTAir’s Mi-26 heavy twins landed hard, rolled and caught fire, killing one crewmember and injuring the other five. There were no passengers aboard.
