Mil Mi-26: Liquidator.

Apart of the massive and clumsy looking V-12 prototypes, the Mil Mi-26 is the heaviest helicopter to have flown to date. Not only that, it’s proven also to be a very productive and rugged workhorse.

Let’s remember that 30 years ago some very brave and selfless Human Beings -capital letters obligatory here-  gave almost literally their life while cleaning the Chernobyl nuclear mess. This Mi-26 is sure one of those “too hot” vehicles that rest at the Rassorva graveyards.
