When were the Mil Mi-26 and the Boeing Vertol Chinook first flown, respectively? Does anyone have the apooroximate dates?

"The IAF has had a troubled run with its spare heavylift rotory wing capability………… helicopters will give IAF planners the kind of heavylift rotory wing flexibility" is it 'rotary'? "aerodynamic, performance and safety constraints on the CH-53 Super Stallion/Mi-26" Where did CH-53 super stallion come from? Why have you included it along with Mi-26? I believe the CH-53 super stallion was never even on offer list to India, so where did the "aerodynamic, performance and safety constraints on the CH-53 Super Stallion" come from?

All said and done, the Mi-26 was called in to rescue a Chinook stranded deep in Afghan enemy territory by none other than the US Govt. Do google it up. I agree with the previous poster that the Chinook is not a necessary purchase. In terms of payload, it is more similar to the upgraded Mi-17 being bought in huge nos by the IAF (139 at last count) and the Chinook is not at all comparable to the Mi-26-in terms of payload. I agree on the lower serviceability of the Mi-26 but with the second gen Mi-26, this would have… Read more »
