    Soviet Era Aircraft at the Southern Museum of Flight

    Presented by at Southern Museum of Flight



    Soviet Era Aircraft at the Southern Museum of Flight

    The Southern Museum of Flight recently acquired two Soviet-era aircraft – the Mi-24 Hind and the An-2 Colt. The aircraft arrived on April 10th, 2012 and the Hind is now on display. Our guests have a rare opportunity to see our restoration experts in work as the Hind is reassembled and restored in the South Wing. The Mi-24 is one of the most iconic relics of the Soviet war in Afghanistan. This multipurpose helicopter was designed as a helicopter gunship for attack purposes, as well as for low-capacity troop transport. It will serve as a focal point for the new Cold War Era Exhibit in the museum’s South Wing. The exhibit will be under development over the next year. Stay tuned for more details!


    The Southern Museum of Flight is dedicated to investigating, preserving, and promoting the rich stories of Southern Aviation and to providing exciting, interactive educational programming for people of all ages. Through collaborative partnerships with the community, the Southern Museum of Flight provides a continuum of exhibitions, displays, and educational services with a sincere devotion to cultural and historical literacy.
