On 9th May , a shepherd found a dead body in the forest near Sapanta , Maramures County. After that ,the remains of a Kamov Ka-26 was found near. The aircraft has no registration or any details about it , and this could be an illegal entry in Romania beacuse there's no Ka-26 helicopter in Romania with those colours on it. According investigations the crash took place at 8 may.It seems that the pilot was performing a low flight during nightime when he lost control of the aircaft.
