A helicopter W-3PL Głuszec ("Capercaillie") of the Polish Air Force made an emergency landing in a field near the village of Brudnia, about 15 kilometers from the 56th air base in Inwroclaw. The crew commander made the decision to immediately land and leave the car after smoke appeared in the cockpit during a training flight.


It is reported by the Polish edition of Defense 24.

The Polish State Fire Service received a report of the incident and sent four pieces of equipment to the scene.

Major Piotr Dajchak from the press service of the 56th airbase in Invroclaw said that none of the three members of the helicopter crew were injured in the incident. The car landed in a field near the road connecting the settlements of Brudnya and Volya Stanominskaya. The circumstances of the incident are currently being investigated.

W-3PL Głuszec are in service with the 2nd Squadron of the 56th Air Base in Invroclaw. This is a specialized version of the W-3 Sokol transport helicopter, also capable of performing attack functions. It is equipped with a Ukrainian-made Adros optical-electronic suppression station. The Glukhar is equipped with a remote-controlled 12,7 mm machine gun and a wide range of suspended weapons on four external pylons.

    As a Russophobe, I would wish only one thing, that would have finished off all NATO equipment in the trash, and organized democracy in Poland itself!

    MI-2 cannot be hidden by any NATO camouflage.

      You are wrong - the W-3 Sokół is not a version or even a variant of the development of the Mi-2 helicopter.
      This is a different type, a larger helicopter, built in the late 70s by WSK Świdnik.

        The base for it was the Mi-2 released under license (from wiki)
        Yes, and it is noticeable to the naked eye.

          From wiki

          Under an agreement between Poland and the USSR, the Svidnik plant, in cooperation with the Mila design bureau, began work on a new helicopter that will replace the Mi-4. It was supposed to be an enlarged version of the Mi-2., capable of carrying 1000-1500 kg of cargo or 12 (13 with one crew) passengers. However, the consultations of the Polish side with potential recipients in the USSR led to the fact that the Polish side offered a completely new car with an adapted TWD-10 engine, which was to be produced in Poland as PZL-10W. The idea was accepted and a mock-up was created in 1976.


          The modernized Mi-2 was the PZL Kania.
