|Mil Mi-2 'Hoplite' - 7/24|
A Mi-2U at Werneuchen in January 1991. As a twin-control training machine, the Mi-2U had a 5 kg lead weight attached to the tail skid
to counter balance the additional weight of a second flight controls set in the nose section. Note also the unidentified
"big box" under the tail boom root: was it housing a camera?
(See the pictures at the bottom of THIS PAGE). The two smaller squared fairing
under the tail boom end were the antennas of the RV-3 radio altimeter.
