Kamov Ka-26 D-HOAY, NATO designation 'Hoodlum'

Russian utility and crop spraying helicopter photographed inside The Helicopter Museum, Weston-super-Mare, on 20 April 2013.
C/n 7001309. See also picture #10977 and picture #11516.
Co-axial contra-rotating main rotor system with two three-bladed rotors, set one above the other and turning in opposite directions, powered by two Vedeneyev M-14V-26 9-cylinder radial piston engines.
This example was originally purchased by Interflug in East Germany in 1973 and was stored in a museum in Berlin, together with another example. The Museum agreed to exchange a spare WS-55 Whirlwind Series 3 for D-HOAY, and later purchased a cabin pod to complete the aircraft, which then underwent a major restoration programme before returning to public display.
