A similar helicopter in Greek colors has crashed in Aegean Sea.

Two pilots and one technician lost their lives when an AB-212 helicopter of Greek Navy has crashed on 11th February 2016. The accident happened in the north Aegean near the island Kinaros.

The Agusta Bell helicopter was taking part in the night military exercise ‘hunder’. It had taken off from a frigate sailing in the area and disappeared from radar around 0045 GMT. Wreckage has been found near Kinaros,” a ministry official said.

Armed forces chief Vangelis Apostolakis said weather conditions had been normal at the time when radar contact and communications were lost.

He said only parts of the wreckage had been found, and that there was little hope that any of the crew would be found alive.

Turkey issued a Notice to Airmen saying the Greek rescue operation was within its maritime search and rescue region and that all efforts should be coordinated with Turkish authorities.
