«Heavy Transport Helicopter Mil V-12 Under Snowfall (Side View)»

The side view of the world largest helicopter Mil V-12 (Mi-12) built in 1967 in winter snowy day. NATO reporting name for this giant helicopter was given “Homer” and the name “Mi-12" would have been the name for the production helicopter. Since the V-12 never went into serial production and only two prototypes were built, the name "Mi-12" was never officially adopted. The one of the two prototypes of the heavy transport helicopter, that is bigger than US army Boeing CH-47 Chinook, visitors of the museum can see right at the entrance of the open-area exhibition of the Central Air Force museum in Monino. In February 1969 during the flight tests the Mil V-12 exhibited in the museum lifted a record load of 31 tons to altitude almost 3000 meters. It was flown to the museum in 1975.
