This KA-27 is on-board the Vice Admiral Kulakov--which is open to the public this weekend, commemorating the 70th Anniversary of the Battle of the Atlantic.

Hello Voodoo,

Nice pic. From the angle taken I take it you must have got on board the Kulakov on Saturday. I went on Sunday but was unable to get on. I am interested in finding out the con number for this Helix. From your image it appears there is a 5 digit number on the "blue box" about mid-way down the fuselage but I cant quite make it out. Did you happen to make a note of this number ? Or, if not, can you zoom in on your original image to try and read it ?

Many thanks for your assistance.

Rgds.

Hi,Supercouse,
The number you are interested in is 79601. Even though there were massive crowds around the pier -head on Saturday,the waiting time for touring the Kulakov was only around 30 mins.
