A little history
The Mil Mi-6, is a heavy transport helicopter of Soviet manufacture whose prototype made its first flight in 1957. Flight tests of the Mi-6 ended successfully in December 1962. The report made by the Russian government stipulated clearly that it was the largest helicopter in the world (42m long). Its performance exceeded that of all Soviet helicopters in service thanks to its turbines and also in terms of payload capacity. The Mi-6 can carry up to 70 equipped soldiers or 120 passengers in the civilian version.
The Mi-6 was officially entered into the inventory of the Soviet Air Force in 1963. A civilian passenger-carrying version was developed for Aeroflot. In 1965, the civilian Mi-6 made its first appearance abroad at the Paris Air Show. Following this, NATO assigned the nickname “Hook” to the device.
The first military operation of the Mi-6 took place on the night of August 21, 1968, when several of these helicopters accompanied by Mi-4 landed on the tarmac of the Prague-Ruzyne airport to participate in the invasion of Czechoslovakia. . During the war in Afghanistan, the Mi-6 regularly flew at an altitude of 6000m to escape fire from the ground. During this conflict, they were used almost exclusively for transport operations, and exceptionally for assaults. The Mi-6s were also the first to take part in the dropping of sand and other materials to stop the reaction following the explosion of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant on April 26, 1986. Most Mi-6s were replaced by the Mi- 26 in the 1990s.
