REQ: Helicopter doing firefighting in Alanya, Turkey.

Post by beertjeman »

Hi,

I just returned from my holiday in Alanya and we were close to a area that caught fire.
A helicopter came to put out the fire but unfortunatly I only had a GoPro with me.

So I don't have a serial or anything.

Who could help me identify this aircraft?
Thanks!

Here a bad zoomed screenshot from a movie I shot with the GoPro.

Looks like an Mi-8/Mi-17 from a Slovakian company? I remember once seeing them. But since I am not really into civil, I didn't pay attention...

Shot the video against the sun so it was hard to see anything clear.
I think the helicopter was yellow/blue.
