These photos show a Russian Mi-8 "Hip" assault helicopter near Cedar Gate. The Mi-8, identifiable by the tail rotor on the right side, is the original Russian version of the more frequently seen Mi-17/Mi-8M export version, shown on this page. Photos were taken with a regular non-telephoto lens during Red Flag in 1999. All photos by Danny Moreau via Pat Jordan, with friendly permission. Click images to enlarge.
