Photos of SyAAF Mil Mi-8s

Few photos collected from web representing some SyAAF Mil Mi-8's.
The above one with serial 02 painted in white on the fuselage, the complete serial should be either 1202 or 202 (which should be written also in white on the boom); This one belongs to the sky-dive team in Lattakia city.

Another Mi-8 operated by sky-dive team in Lattakia with serial 85 (i.e 1285).

Another closer shot for the same Mi-8 85.

One of the earliest images of a SyAAF Mi-8 with serial 1287.

Mi-8 with serial 274 thought to be photographed in Lattakia or Tadmor.

Mi-8 with serial 57 (i.e either 257 or 1257), spotted in Lattakia.

This Mi-8 with serial 252 was spotted in September or October this year in Nubbol town to the north of Aleppo city.
Witnesses commented it was delivering aid and ammunition to Nubbol and Zahra'a towns those greatly support the Syrian regime.
