Air base 378 is a comparatively new formation created half a year ago by uniting two military units.
Prayer before a flight
Today there are three squadrons in the regiment: on combat helicopters Mi-24, on transport-combat Mi-8 and on special (electronic warfare) Mi-8. The last ones were forbidden to be shot as well as the command centre.
Soon they should get Mi-28N
Transport combat helicopters are represented by Mi-8MT. They are all rather old, dated the 80s. “MT” modification must soon be replaced with MTB-5.
Half doors are assembled back
They plan to widen the parking place.
