Mil MI-8 RA-25183 - Who's Is It?

Mon Aug 30, 2004 6:10 pm

Last week at Longyearbyen airport in Spitsbergen, I saw a Russian MI-8 helicopter, painted mostly orange, with the registration RA-25183. It had titling in Russian that I believe translates roughly to Central Districts Aviation, but I'm not at all sure. I guess its there tranferring mining crews to the Russian coal mines in Barentsburg, but I would be most interested to know to whom it belongs. I took a pic, and will try to post it here, but if anyone has definitive info as to the ownership of this aircraft, I'd appreciate it.

Thanks
