    I believe that the Mi-4s where the first helicopters to successfully fly in Antarctica they where called Mi-4Schch and where modified. I cant really find anything about the expeditions.

    The Mi-4 entered use in 1951 it was a second generation design back then they still used radial piston engines the Mi-4. The Mi-8 is basically a larger version of the Mi-4 using gas turbine engines and having much better performance.With radial engines designers where forced to place the engine in the nose of the aircraft and the cockpit above.
