The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model. If any users of the site would be interested in the possibility of taking this incredible archive or pictures and comments over including paying for hosting, please get in touch
Planes and Choppers
Kamov Ka-26 helicopter
Photographed in the Schleissheim Air & Space Museum, near Munich, on 2 September 2010.
See picture #10977
for details of this Russian-built helicopter, with its 2 counter-rotating rotors (and thus no need of a tailrotor). Note the hopper for fertiliser or tank for crop spraying, behind the cabin.
