On days off in the Belotserkovsky region of Kiev region the light airplane, the reduced copy of the Messershmitt model of times of World War II broke. That which was damned so by inhabitants of Kiev on an air show "Pride of Ukraine".
As the person on duty pozharno - saving part of the Belotserkovsky area told, accident happened at about noon on Saturday, in a minute fighters of the Ministry of Emergency Situations were alarmed. On training flight I operated "Messer's" copy 51 - the summer citizen of Germany Helmar Enke, but at take-off, approximately on 50 - meter height (similar to height of the 16-floor house), the pilot didn't manage to drive from - for a strong wind and lost height.
"The pilot jumped out of "Messer" on a parachute, and escaped. The plane failed near garden society, from blow it damaged a motor compartment and a tail, the pilot - the German survived. I injured a hand. The pilot told that refuses hospitalization. Air accident happened from - that weather conditions in any way were incompatible with flights", - the employee reported a press - services of a central board of the Ministry of Emergency Situations of Kiev region Victoria Ruban.
Helmar really was yesterday in consciousness, there is no need to go to hospital to it, but he is terribly upset that lost such excellent car which adored. It shocked also can't communicate yet. Such copy costs about 70 thousand euro.
One and a half months ago on the International air show of "Aviasuites of XXI" near Gostomel Helmar's plane participated in an exhibition. The pilot then told that with the German crosses on wings and a tail he brought the reduced model from Germany in the truck to White Church, and from there took off and landed on "Messere" already in Gostomel, at an exhibition of achievements of the Ukrainian aviation industry. Some visitors then were indignant with that the German with chevrons of the Air Force of fascist Germany of "Luftwaffe" showed this plane at a populous exhibition, and one of guests knocked a fist on a wing of the plane and "seasoned" blow with words:"Same "Messera" bombed my grandfather in war, and now them suggest to admire! "
The German behaved cultural, didn't react to emotions, and with pleasure told that now in Germany there is the firm issuing copies of those planes. "As far as I know, they have many orders, planes are in demand. But, if to me suggested to sell in Ukraine the plane, I for anything disagreed", - Helmar surely declared.
