Clad in dark green parkas and nervously fingering the gold crosses around their necks, the 40 Armenians flew into the battle zone aboard an aging helicopter that used to belong to the Soviet state airline. One passenger was a skinny, soft-spoken medical student in a Boy Scout uniform who firmly gripped an automatic rifle. Another, a father of three young children, was an accordion teacher from Yerevan, Armenia's capital, whose wife was deathly afraid he might be killed.

Azerbaijan on Saturday accused Armenia of launching a surprise invasion of its territory with the aid of units of the former Soviet army, only two days after a call for an immediate cease-fire.

Looking resigned to the work, an Azerbaijani pilot sat in his cockpit with a weary smile Saturday as a crowd stormed his MI-8 Aeroflot helicopter for another terrifying flight into the Armenian-controlled hills of Nagorno-Karabakh. Civilians fought soldiers for places aboard, prying open windows to dive in head first.
