Awesome piece of equipment. We used one in the 90's on a project in northern Russia transporting pipe and living accommodation modules out on the tundra. Got to ride up in the jump seat between the pilot/copilot one time. Rental and fuel was cheap then.

Not a fully outfitted one as that shown has been stripped of anything they could take off.

The wording describing the background to the Mi-26 pic is incorrect. Definitely not 'clear blue skies', dark thunderclouds is perhaps a more accurate description...
