M.Ashley - The Falcon has landed
The Falcon has landed. Poland's new helicopter on display for the first time in the UK at Redhill during Heli-Tech '91.
The distinctive design influence of the Soviet Mil Bureau is evident in the shape of the cabin, the mountings for the engine intakes and the style of the tri-cycle undercarriage. Nonetheless, PZL-Swidnik emphasise that the Sokol is Poland's first new helicopter design for nearly forty years.
