Mil V-12 (Mi-12) superheavy-lift helicopter. This transverse rotor helicopter design, capable of lifting heavy loads, was produced by the aviation bureau led by Soviet helicopter designer Mikhail Mil (1909-1970). Only two prototypes were ever built. They achieved weight lifting records, lifting over 40 tons. The helicopter had a crew of 6, could carry 196 passengers, was 37 metres long, and had a wingspan of 67 metres across the two rotors. Photographed in 1971.
