      Su-24 Jet flying around the Orenburg city. As Michael, the photographer, states it takes the plane speed of around 400 km/h for a take off – during this the land literary trembles because of the jet’s power, then it goes off to the air.

        So, ok, I know we had it just yesterday, but here is another flight around over the Moscow on the military helicopter. This time of the year, before the parade, it’s an unique chance to get a few peeks on Moscow from the places not normally available for flying. Also some helicopters.

It is a twin-engined development of the Myasishchev M-17 Stratosphera with a higher maximum take-off weight.

                          A few facts about MI-28 Russian helicopter.

                          After the war of Afghanistan there was clear that Soviet army needs a new helicopter to come replace the MI-24 used at times. In 1982 the Mile bureau introduced the new helicopter – MI-28, which was equal to the newly adopted “Apache” helicopters of USA and superseding the existing Soviet MI-24 copters. This was the most armored helicopter in the world. It couldn’t be shot down from the ground with the help of just handheld fire arms.

                          In 1984 the machine went into series.

                            Soviet Union always loved everything big. So the decision to make the biggest helicopter with the largest carrying capacity was quite natural for the country.

                            Development of the V-12 project began in 1963, the serial Mi-6 helicopter became the basis for the new huge vehicle. To simplify the task the engineers just decided to double propelling plants. What they got was a “heaven monster” with four gas-turbine engines, 6497 hp each!

                              If there is a fire around but no fire trucks, then an MI-26 helicopter can bring you a fire truck on demand. As the author of the photos says, it takes less than two minutes to load the truck into the helicopter. He says those MI-26′s can carry a payload of up to 20 tons and the crew of each is six people. Also, the engines of the beast are rated at 11,400 horse power. The fire truck goes inside fully loaded with water in its tank, so if there is a fire somewhere where no trucks are available, they can be delivered in minutes right to the place.
