RUSSIA : Daring Prison Escape By Helicopter...Ends With Capture.


      Despite an initally successful movie-like helicopter escape from a remote prison...murderer Alexei Shestakov, 35...was caught not far away from the village of Sheksna in Vologda.
     Police encountered and wounded Shestakov...who had served 12 years of a 24-year sentence...for murder and theft...as he stopped a car.
     His helpers had booked a helicopter and then hijacked it at gunpoint.
     It had hovered above the jail...as the convict climbed its ladder.
