Flanker-Fan Posted August 27, 2010 Report Share Posted August 27, 2010 Hope you guys can help with something of a mystery for me. While on vacation last week in Myrtle Beach, SC I had something of a shock when I watched a Russian Mi-8 “Hip” pass along the beach going south. It was either orange or yellow in color with black or blue trim and had the ramp style tailgate vs. the normal clam shell doors in the back (does this make it a Mi-171?) There was no mistaking what it was, felt like I had seen Big Foot or something! It’s my understanding that the -8 isn’t certified to fly in the states so I’m at a loss as to what it was doing in South Carolina. Can anyone shed some light on the details of this machine?
