22-Mar-12 Mil Mi-2 Sheksna, Russia

Two people hijacked the helicopter, forced the pilot to fly to a prison at gunpoint, and then hovered as a rope ladder was dropped town for prisoner Alexei Shestakov to escape.  Prison guards shot at the helicopter in an attempt to force it to land.  The aircraft was later found abandoned on the edge of Vologda.  The hijackers were named here as Tatyana Vazhalina, 35, and Alexander Rusakov, 36
