"While you were out having fun, I found an old helicopter that I was able to get working. I've got it all packed up and ready to go. Never a dull moment, huh?"
Alyx Vance[src]

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


Found and prepared by Alyx Vance, it was to be used by her and Gordon Freeman to reach Judith Mossman and the Borealis right after the rocket launch. Before the duo could depart, they were attacked by Advisors.

This helicopter appears to be a Russian Mil Mi-8 helicopter that seems to have been operated by the 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 crashes in Arctic regions.
