Mi-8M

One of few Somali Air Corps Mi-8Ms that survived intact the chaos in Somalia of the late 1980s and early 1990s was CC-72. It was found in derelict condition by US Marines at Mogadischu airfield, in 1991. The national marking applied on the boom is not confirmed: the few available photographs of this helicopter show in in a very poor condition, with only a very faded light blue field in that place.
