The '''Mil Mi-8''' is a helicopter seen parked in a hangar at White Forest, at the very end of ''Half-Life 2 Episode Two''.

==Overview==
Found and prepared by Alyx Vance, it was to be used by her and Gordon Freeman to reach Judith Mossman and the ''Borealis (Aperture Science ship)|Borealis'' right after the rocket launch. Before the duo left, Combine Advisor|Advisors attacked them and killed Eli Vance, delaying the departure.

This helicopter appears to be a Russian WikipediaMil Mi-8|Mil Mi-8 helicopter that seems to have been operated by the WikipediaVietnamese People's Air Force|Vietnamese People's Air Force, given its roundel.

==Behind the scenes==

Concept art for ''Episode Three'' suggests that Gordon and Alyx will still use the helicopter to go looking for Mossman, and crash in Arctic regions.

==Trivia==
This specific helicopter appears to be a variant of the Mi-8 that is called the Mi-8M in Russia (and the Mi-17 elsewhere), based on the fact that unlike the standard Mi-8, which has its tail rotor on the starboard (right) side, this helicopter has its tail rotor on the port (left) side.
