Brugge, Belgium

These are the biggest helicopters in the world. The helicopters were used by Skytech, a Belgium company providing helicopters for heavy lift and utility services around the globe.

Ми-26T

The helicopters are Russian made Mil MI-26T or Ми-26T heli’s. These giants can load 20.000 kg and can reach a speed op 295 km/h. Another type, the MI-26S was a hastily developed version for disaster relief tasks following the Chernobyl nuclear facility accident. These helicopters where transported from the airports of Bierset and Gosselies to the harbour of Zeebrugge. Normally the machines had to be shipped to Russia, but due of financial problems they are stuck at the site of the transport company.
