Hungarian Hind visits Leicester Square

London’s Leicester Square on 7 February played host to the star-studded premiere of the new film ‘A Good Day to Die Hard’, and no, we didn’t get an invite either.

I was intrigued as why a movie about a trigger-happy US cop set in Moscow would require the promotional folks to exhibit what was clearly a Hungarian-liveried Mi-24 “Hind” assault helicopter. But I’m told that much of the filming was done in Budapest, so I guess that makes some kind of sense.

My colleague Michael Targett snapped the aircraft during set-up earlier in the day, but the Rex Features image underneath reveals what was a rather poor effort to disguise its nationality. Gaffer tape is also now available in white, apparently, looking at the revised marking on the tail boom.

Bit of a missed opportunity also to have shown the aircraft without dummy rocket pods installed, but maybe that’s not red carpet decorum?

For the military kit fanciers out there, the latest Die Hard trailer also shows an Mi-26 helicopter and fleetingly what looks very much like a Global Hawk UAV, but at way too low a level. And for any bikers like me, please try to keep your eyes firmly on the Yamaha R1 (Google the trailer, you’ll see what I mean).
