Narrative:
The An-12 cargo plane landed 2 minutes after a Mil Mi-8 helicopter (RA-24247) and struck its spinning rotor blades. The helicopter caught fire; all 8 passengers of the helicopter didn't survive while the 3 crewmembers managed to escape.
The Mi-8 was just clearing the runway near Taxiway 4 when the collision took place. The An-12 pilot had been instructed to go-around, but the approach was continued because the crew had already established visual contact with the runway. The An-12 crew thought they had to go-around due to poor visibility (which was 500 m) instead of traffic on the runway.
The Antonov had been chartered by the Yermolinsky Flight Test organization.
