Killed in Syria during takeoff su-24 Navigator Yuri Kopylov was a good friend and a creative person, told his colleague on photography Nikita Evdakov.

According to the defense Ministry of Russia, October 10, when performing the acceleration to take off from the airfield Hamim in Syria for combat mission aircraft su-24 skidded off the runway and collapsed. The crew managed to eject and was killed. Aircraft operated by a pilot Yuri Medvedkov and Navigator Yuri Kopylov. Both served in the Kaliningrad city of Chernyakhovsk. At this moment in Voronezh held a memorial service for Yuri Kopylov.

«We Yura together studied the art of photography. I know Yuri is not as an officer, not as a military man, and as a creative person, as a good friend. He has really loved photography,» he told reporters Evdakov.

According to him, Kopylov he had known since 1999, and over the past 20 years, Yuri really paid much attention to photography, doing it professionally, though it was not his profession.

«He liked to shoot the planes, the sky and nature. We several times went to canoe camping, Yuri managed landscape pictures of nature, animals. Yura was a very technically savvy person… he had so many wonderful images — portraits, a lot of aviation. Yura invited us to the celebration of the air force at the airfield, and a lot of interesting talks about aviation,» he recalls.

«Young, talented, energetic, with a strong core, a very principled man. George was a good friend, a good friend. A big loss for all of us,» said Evdakov.
