Hi noyade,

A maintenance panel, yes. And it's high indeed.

@ Kitbag

A rotary wing it is, but not a Huey.

OK, I may have been a little too mean tilting the picture.
It is now back to "properly oriented" (4 posts above - if needed [CTRL]+[F5]).

Ahhh....I see now!

Cause I just couldn't figure out why the engine stuck out like that and the 'fuselage' just seemed to vanish....



Cheers!

Yeah mate, that was my "pre-turn" perspective.

Not a Puma either.

In fact, not a French aircraft, even if the picture was taken in France.

Almost

It's a Polish Mi-17, the upgraded export version of the Hip (aka Mi-8MT in Russia, so your "Mi-8" is pretty much OK for an answer).

Here is the full picture (and other of the same aircraft).
