A Russian air force helicopter has crashed in front of thousands of spectators at an air show east of Moscow, killing one of the pilots, in the latest in a string of military crashes involving military aircraft.

The Mil Mi-28N attack helicopter was participating in the show at Dubrovichi air field near the town of Ryazan, 124 miles east of Moscow. The show was part of a competition organized by the Russian defense ministry.

“One pilot has died, the condition of the other is satisfactory,” the ministry said in a statement.
