This rare aircraft is one of two ex-Bulgarian MI-17's purchased by Qinetiq to train Afghan pilots. The aircraft only operates on parts of the Salisbury Plain Training Area. The aircraft is destined to work in Afghanistan around March 2010.

Mi-17 is a great aircraft, specialy designed for heavy duty in extreme climate conditions and particularly good as a transport at mountain areas.I wish British forces in Afganistan would take an advantage of using this bird for different combat and civil roles.
