Helicopter tows plane

Children often ask something like “Mommy, who would win – helicopter or plane?”. Those guys from Moscow could give the answer easily to such a question showing how powerful helicopters are – they easily can move whole planes from place to place.

      Russian planes cant fly and had to be flown by a helicopter :(

      • Mr_India says:

        Russian helicopters are very powerful when it gets to rescuing very heavy equipment is what my friend wanted to say. Please excuse her, she is not very good at english.

  2. Viper007Bond says:

    I take it that’s a Mil Mi-26, i.e. the world’s largest production helicopter? Pretty cool. :)

  3. eop says:

    viper007bond, yep i believe you are right.. aka Halo as for NATOs reporting name. I saw one very far away once :)

  4. Miss India says:

    Russians so poor that they have enormous helicopters :D, poor russians

  5. madachode says:

    Why is that gypsey writing on the side of the helicopter? I thought that gypsey’s were not allowed to touch helicopters

  6. Jason says:

    Is this a Aeroflot Soviet Airlines plane?

    There is no Russian flag on the tail!

  7. Z says:

    “for trainings” written on that plane, and that chopper has a rescue service signs. So i bet that plane uses for trainig in any emergency situations.

  8. Mr.Pakistan says:

    only in russia

  9. Jerika says:

    I do not think all Russian planes have a flag on the tail.

    This does look like a training exercise.It is good that Russia does this!

    What an neat sight, Russian helicopters are awesome. From a distance it must have looked quite confusing.

  12. [...] Källa: English Russia [...]

    This is an economic answer to having to upgrade older aircraft

    ‘Children often ask something like “Mommy, who would win – helicopter or plane?”.’ – Hahaha

    Yet again outstanding shots in englishrussia. Look how giant is that chopper, I guess a void plane without machinery is not so heavy as it could seem to be.

    Miss India: attract your fingers sth else instead of a keyboard, please..

  17. [...] avión (un gigantesco Tupolev Tu 134), así como lo ven, es sólo un niño que todavía no aprende a volar, por ese motivo, uno de sus familiares, el tío helicóptero (un todavía más grande Mil Mi-26), [...]

    Now thats pretty crazy. There are people right underneath that plane as it is being carried away. What would happen in a cable were to snap.

  19. lesha111 says:

    Yep, this is a helicopter of EMERCOM (Emergency Control Ministry) of Russia. The plane is carried for training purposes. EMERCOM now has almost a full range of training objects from buildings to planes. As they claim, the only thing which is still needed is a subway train with a tunnel :D. That makes EMERCOM one of the most experienced and trained rescue organisation in the world, which helps in rescue operations around the globe with its technics and specialists.

    Me gustaron las fotos y video que recibi veo que Rucia no se ha quedado atras en la tecnologia me gustaria ver tecnologia espacial muy agradecido y esperando mas queda muy de ustedes german anibal

  21. BonnieBarko says:

    the cccp built the largest helicopters. I remember a picture of an actual plane just with rotors on each wing.

  22. Timmy says:

    russian choppers do have quite a different look than american helicopters, pretty interesting.

  23. Eurico Ribeiro says:

    Of course but he plane (TU-134) doesn’t have already the heavier parts: the two rear engines! And besides the middle part of the two wings are not present!
    I did have flight on this airplane, the Tupolev 134, a NATO codename “Crusty”. An interesting sample of the military old Soviet planes which the beak is still in glass and the radar encasement bellow, remembering the bombers of old!
    A couple of few years more and they will be history!

  24. Eurico Ribeiro says:

    By the way the engines are placed in the back side of the plane! Without them and the fuel the structure are obviously light!

  25. Mike says:

    wow the blades on the chopper must of been flexing like crazy.

  26. mussa says:

    o my GOD its really a heavy plane and this helicopter is carrying it like a small baby :)
    its a big shock for me how a helicopter can pick up a giant plane like this

  27. froggy says:

    I believe iv seen a article were a mi-26 was moving a Chinook in Afghanistan because coalition force didn’t have a helicopter that could lift so much.
