An operatonal Mi-14PS of ther Ukraine Naval Aviation component in splendid condition. The helicopter was repainted after an overhaul in 2012 in this striking colour scheme. Although, a Mi-14 is able to land on water, this one leaked and was not allowed anymore to come too close to water.
This Mi-14PL was not modified to PLM like 36 yellow (see my other picture). The 35 yellow was in its original livery and reportedly temporary stored. The Mi-14 was possibly awaiting modification to PLM.
Mid-2012, three Mi-14s were seen at Saky of which this 35 yellow was recently fitted with a new camouflage pattern and was assessed as in immaculate condition. The helicopter was airworthy and equipped with a working dipping sonar that is used for coastal patrols and Anti-Surface/Submarine Warfae (ASW). The helicopter belongs to the Saks'ka Aviatsiya Brigada (SABr), the Naval Air Component of the Viys'kovo-Mors'ki Syly Ukrayiny (Ukraine Navy). This unit operates two unnumbered Helicopter Eskadrily'.
