Narrative:
This Libyan Mi-35 was stuck under a bridge while being transported into Tripoli. Sources say that it is the one which was captured in Tarhuna a few days ago. This Mi35 has been sprayed on the way and the rotor removed so they can pass easily. The helicopter was captured by the Government of National Accord (GNA).

On 6th August 2020 it was seen for the first time at MJI/HLLM, near the other abandoned helicopters (32.889756, 13.306371).
