In May 2016, the Air Force Academy got its very first rotary-wing aircraft.

This was a Mil Mi-8 helicopter placed at the AFA’s new parade ground, Right next to the Museum.

Uniquely this chopper was mounted on a pylon set in a concrete platform.

There is not much to add to its history, but it likely came from 112 HU in Bengaluru. If we find out more, we will add it here.
