Helicopter turbines

In the former Soviet Union I have seen these put to use as:

1 Driving a previously diesel powered generator

2 On a stand in the back of a pick-up, the exhaust was used for de-icing…

Incidentally, heard a story once about a Mi 8 (bright yellow – ugh!) that “lost” a door in flight. Pilot continued as if nothing had happened, no doubt the finder incorporated it into a fence…

And you thought Africa was king of the recyclers?

BTW fuselage restaurants are in-eligible.
