CLANDESTINE HELICOPTER MANUFACTURING PLANT CLOSED DOWN IN MOLDOVA

On 2 July, Aviation Week reported that authorities in Moldova had closed down an illegal helicopter works producing copies of the Russian Kamov Ka.26.  The secretly-built helicopters were about to be exported illegally to former Soviet countries. During the search on production lines more than 10 helicopters are found that are at different stages of readiness.
