MILAN - A little happy landing to a helicopter that was overturned on Friday a little after 13:00, immediately after touching the ground of the Bresso airport runway. Unharmed the two pilots, instructor and student, 35 and 29 years. On the spot reached by the Bresso police, firefighters from Sesto San Giovanni fire and two ambulance services.
