    Are these Polish helos? I know the Mi-17s are originally Russian and the Poles for sure use the Mi-24.

    Good to hear Jim and be safe! Are you going to bring us back another nice selection of patches?

    It has been reported that DEA FAST, Army SF, SEALs/DEVGRU, and other coalition SOF ride in Mi17s during missions.

    Very cool pics. Is that an M134 I see mounted on one of those?

    As some of you know and some of you probably suspect I was flying the Mi17 during my year in Afghanistan.

    I gotta say it does not compare to western aircraft for comfort or reliability but was a strong workhorse all the same.

    Very cool Jim, thanks for sharing. In the middle pic you can see the pilot is wearing one of the 777 patch variants on the shoulder of his flight suit.

    The first from your last post is quite impressive. It looks like that parking places are sometimes not easy to find.
