How do helicopters
• How do helicopters
I and a small group of reporters showed Moscow Helicopter Plant. Mile, part of the holding "Helicopters of Russia". More precisely, it is only a small part, because, firstly, the Modal factory, far from here you can walk everywhere with every interesting characters, and even with the cameras, and secondly, it is very large. We were shown HeliVert shop, where are collected Italian helicopter Agusta Westland 139, one of the protagonists of the last exhibition Heli Russia 2013.
But Plant. Mile - is primarily a legendary Mi. At the plant there is a museum, where the whole family gathered these helicopters. This time, however, his examination had no time. However, here's one of his exhibits, a unique B-12 (Mi-12). Very similar to the passenger, like, plane. However, its purpose was not peaceful, it was developed as a part of the carrier ballistic missiles.
It is the lifting helicopter ever created, during trials in 1969 it managed to raise 44 205 kilograms, and this record has not been broken. 2 units were produced in all of the helicopters, and both are preserved: one is located here in the factory, the second in the museum in Monino. The series did not go, because fighters have appeared lighter missiles and mobile units for transporting them, and for peaceful purposes, and lack of other helicopters. Get inside, too, failed
The shop HeliVert struck above all clean and tidy. In principle, at any plant of the journalist, and even more bloggers, will not be allowed in an untidy shop, and most likely will lead to the most licked available. But HeliVert apparently surpasses even these "best licked" shops, which I have visited.
