Mil Mi-24 Hind-A

@ Vietnam People’s Air Force Museum- Hanoi, Vietnam

July 2008

I was able to tour this museum during a family trip in 2008.  Besides the $1.20 USD admission fee, I had to pay an additional $.30 USD for a photo permit.  The Hind-A was an early version, and first production model, of this iconic Soviet armed assault helicopter, which could carry eight combat troops and three crew members. It could also carry four 57mm rocket pods on four underwing pylons, four anti-tank missiles on two underwing rails, free-fall bombs, plus one 12.7mm machine-gun in the nose.  Nikon D70 w/28-85mm, processed with Aperture.
