Abandoned Russian helicopter base


When the USSR collapsed a large number of abandoned military based closed almost overnight. These bases have been left to rot, and many include large scale military equipment.

These Mi-24 helicopters that have been put out of operation are spending their final days rotting away.

The Mi-24 was a first tactical machine designed by MI and was in production until the 90s. After the collapse of the USSR, the manufacturers of different parts of the helicopter were separated by the borders of the newly formed ex Soviet states.
