PS-mil24.jpg 16337 bytes The rotorcraft is a Mi-24 "D" or "E" model. It was travelling home with a Mi-8 "Hip" from airshows in the fall, as a fundraiser for a retirement home for Russian women test pilots. The Mi-8 damaged its tail rotor in a landing accident at Watson Lake, B.C., and was put on a truck to Edmonton, while the Hind was flown here. On the trip to Edmonton, Capt. Stew Shock of the RCAF flew the chopper from the gunner's position for 30 min. The pilot for that trip was Lt-Col. Vladimir Kalish, who flow the Mi-24 in Afghanistan. The two rotorcraft waited on the ramp at the International Airport for their ride home, an Antonov An-124 cargo plane, which arrived Dec. 24. It was still wearing the red Soviet flag and an aeroflot colour scheme. The two choppers had their rotors stowed and they were loaded up.

The Hind shows the effects of long travel in the exhaust area. It is painted up in a rather interesting scheme, the red, white and blue of the Commonwealth of Independant States. Near the cockpits is a large gold logo, some sort of logo for the Christopher Columbus 500th anniversary in 1992. On the tailboom, above the flags, are the words "Woman's flight '92". On the tip of the winglet is the "Mil" logo, I think. Note also the large fuel or cargo pods on the winglets.
