Mil Mi-6A: Deep in the Zone.

April 26th, 1986.

The time has stopped from this pair of Mil Mi-6’s  employed  during the Chernobyl nuclear plant disaster. Three decades today after the nuclear accident, many of these heavily contaminated vehicles used in the dangerous clean-up operations still remain at the Rassorva graveyards inside the vast exclusion zone around the reactor.

Eeriest than the already very creepy “Stalker” of Andrei Tarkovsky.
