Poljot Mi-26

Golden Eagle/Berkut

The Golden Eagle/Berkut helicopter aerial aerobatic team began flying in 1992, and recently celebrated their 20th anniversary in 2012. Although not as flashy as fighter plane aerobatics, helicopters are very difficult to fly in close formation.

By this point in time (ca. 1996), the market must have been saturated with large numbers of MiG 29/31 commemorative chronographs, as is eBay today, and an obvious need for some new designs was in order.

Some may wonder why there is no Cyrillic script on these pages? Well, it's because the web pages are made with Notepad. Someday I will upgrade to something better! ;-)
