/ What happens when the rescue helicopter needs a rescue?
Apologies if it's been posted before, I did use search.
oh well haha, I even searched the URL!
Look at the date and the year!
But what happens if the Chinook needs rescuing?
That's a MI-26, rescuing an american chinook which was forced down in afganistan. It's huge!
good grief, that must be truly *massive*....!
haha, that's awesome!
These are quite big as well.

But what happens if the MI-26 needs rescuing? It's like that infant school thing about the spider and the bird and the cat and all that :-)
Or as Qui Gon Jinn might say, "there's always a bigger fish"
> These are quite big as well.
Look at this bad boy!
Payload 50% more than the Skycrane and first flew nearly 60 years ago
There's another with a higher payload but this Mi-6 looks more brutal :-)
"The tail rotor has about the same rotor diameter and thrust of the four-bladed MD 500 main roto" from Wikipedia :-)
