Helicopter Museum. The first launch of the legendary Mi-6 helicopter

In Russia, you can again hear the roar of a working Mi-6 helicopter, and only in Torzhok. Today, we not only tested the operation of the equipment, we were actually the first visitors to the future interactive helicopter museum. This board stood at one of the airports in the suburbs for more than 31 years, after which its fate decided to become a monument in Perm. Due to transportation difficulties, the idea of ​​\u200b\u200bthe monument was abandoned, and its further fate was already determined by scrap metal, like another Mi-6 car standing nearby. But at the beginning of 2021, thanks to Nadezhda Mikhailovna and her entourage of colleagues who fell in love with helicopters, one of the helicopters was saved and actually got a second life in our city. In six months, we not only transported a 33-meter machine from the southern suburbs of Moscow in Torzhok with its complete disassembly and assembly, but also managed to put one of the engines in “idle gas” mode. In 2022, we plan to restore the fuselage, applying a modern polyurethane coating on it, which will keep the helicopter for many years, even in open air. Already today, even from this video, you can understand what vivid emotions those who visit the interactive helicopter museum will experience. This is the unique difference between the two helicopter museums in Torzhok. Each of the museums will certainly have its own target audience, which will not only ensure sustainable financing for each museum, but also increase tourist traffic, which is qualitatively reflected in the local microeconomy.
