Lodz - Lublinek 15th July 2019

Post by johnwickenden » Mon Jul 15, 2019 10:05 am

Can anybody assist please?

Visited Lodz airport today. On the southwestern side of the base is what appeared to be some kind of military facility. Outside were 4 military choppers. I believe all 4 were Polish Mi24 Hinds. One of them lacked main rotors and any tail boom. Heat haze prevented me getting any serials from the terminal side or the flying clubs in the southeast corner

Mi-24D "272", Mi-24V "727" and Mi-8T "523" are stored at Lodz.

Whoa, hold on! Lodz is a helicopter maintenance facility, so there is quite a turnover of stored machines.
Firstly, Mi-8T 523 has not been noted there for twenty years! This includes by people who have had a tour.
When are you saying 272 and 727 were seen there please MRTT?

Once again, another case of a poorly updated database, my apologies. :)
