Dwellers of this small city were shocked at one winter morning when they found out such an installation at their street. Take a look.
Wow Big toy
And I was first, go on hit me.
*Pistol Whipped in the face and then kicked in the gut*
Most. Awesome. Statue. Ever.
You can’t beat a Hind.
Yes, you can.
All these modern heli’s are too ‘fragile’ so to speak, too much electronics onboard, the Mi-24 was the last ‘awesome’ helicopter in my opinion.
With a Stinger.
nice. i wonder if it will fall down or smth
Wow, that’s a Mil Mi-24 Hind..
I am so first, PHOTOSHOP
First!! Is it a real chopper or some balsawood imitation?
An imitation would be too expensive. It’s real!
what’s the installation for?
I wonder how long it’ll take for an Afghan to shoot it down.
FIRST!!!!! YOUR SHIPMENT OF FAIL HAS BEEN DELIVERED!
Hi, everybody! This helicopter was installed in Lyubertsy town near Moscow. I live near it. The name of this street is “Voinov-Internatsionalistov”. It means that this street is called so for memory of Soviet soldiers which took part in Afghanistan war in 1979-1989. I saw how this helicopter was installed. First they closed road movement down this street. Then they tried to install this helicopter onto this stella but they failed. This helicopter was standing some days near this stella and children were crambling on it. Then they installed it successfully. It’s strange that this helicopter is flying down, not up. It looks like the helicopter is going to fall down.
That’s the way it looks when it’s flying forward or shooting down.

Nothing strange about it. It’s attacking targets on the ground and when it does that it’s “nose” is pointing downward. Watch out, it may get you!
helicopters tend to bend forward while moving forward, and line up horizontally while so called “spot hovering”

I’m look for Afghani husband
Get a sheep-dress and you’ll succeed
I want one in my town!!!
An Afghani husband? In your town? I think a helicopter would be a lot more win.
I was talking about the Hind you Estonian!
LAST! (Well, for now.)
I like the international caution sign for “Step between the spikes not on them” in the first picture.
And that would indeed be a cool art installation to have in your town.
I agree–an international caution sigh WOULD be a cool art installation in my town.
Is this supposed to ‘Art’?
Or is this Gunship simply a film ‘prop’?
First to post last!
Drunken pilot landed there in the middle of the night. . .
. . . or maybe Russian Technical school students playing pranks like MIT and CalTech.
What is the prize for being first?
A steel-toed boot in the groin.
What’s unusual in these pics? There so many military stuff are scattered all over the Russia. Such helicopter is exists in my own city, and pair of MIG-15, and some of T-34 tanks, and even a police BRDM-1. It’s very common in Russia, and there’s absolutely nothing to care about.
