I love the Russian aviation industry! They really do make the coolest, and some of the most specialized stuff. That's a really pretty airplane, and the forestry service desperately needs aircraft that are younger than the ancient stuff they typically employ. »
It must be a gearhead/Jalop thing, but the thought of fake engine noise makes my skin crawl.
