I didn't think you were serious. The big one (in reality) is a Chinook.
On your pic the Chinook is being carried by a much smaller aircraft which is very unlikely. I think the pic has been photo-shopped.

Negative Tailhook, I believe it's real.

The chopper on top is the MI-26.

It's freaking HUGE.

The MI26's Rotor Diameter is 105ft, the Chinook's is 60ft, the overall length of the MI26 is 118ft long, the Chinook is a tiny 52ft.

The MI26's mtow is 123,450lbs why the Chinooks is only 51,000lbs.

I do believe the MI26 is the largest helicopter out there but thats just a guess.

Thanks for those pics Oberkomando -- I haven't come across those choppers before...AMAZING!!

I installed the MI-26 in FS2002 but can't get it off the ground Wall Bashing

Anyway, I still don't know what the MI stands for - can't find any information.

Is there any info on the site where you got those pics from?

ya... anything built russian is HUGE, lol.
..it's just the way they build things... russian style/architecture/engineering.

..even the smaller aircrafts are made to look bigger than they actually are.

...side note: why are there 7 pages of replies on this thread? lol

aye the Russians do like to build stuff!

I was always amazed by the russian TB-3 bomber and the fact it used to carry it's fighter escort with it!

sorry for the somewhat Off Topic! reply but Russian stuff was mentioned and this aircraft has always amazed me, these were flown early on in the war on the eastern front and had been in existence from before WWII I believe.

yes they did take off like this:

Here is one fully loaded... the I-16 (I think) slung underneath has to attach in flight!

Yes the russians do like things bigger and better. The russian AN225 is the largest plane in the world and the Mil MI26 is the largest heli in the world. Has anyone seen the film Die another day? The large plane in that is russian the Ilyushin IL76:
