Yesterday, 3 Mi-14PS helicopters were transported to the Museum of Polish Air Force in Dęblin.
They were withdrawn from the service in the Polish Navy in recent years because technical life of all specimens was finished.
The rescue-variant Mi-14PS was taken on charge between January and April 1984 when four helicopters of this variant were delivered. Examples were lost in 1987 and 1988 prompting the conversion of 1003 and the delivery of another Mi-14PS in 1990. This late delivery wears number 5137 and has a slightly different configuration when compared to the original rescue-Hazes.
All search and rescue tasks of Mi-14PS took over two Mi-14PŁ (Противо Лодочный) ASW role helicopters (1009 and 1012), adapted to the SAR version.
