I've freed up some time this week, and will try to upload at least a few of the images taken at the Georgetown Airfest 2012.
From wikipedia: The MI-24 Hind is, simply put, a beast. 12 metric tons of armor-plated, 200 mph helicopter with a quad 12.7mm articulated machine gun in the nose; it's not the sort of aircraft you want to run into under unfriendly circumstances.
The Cold War Air Museum has three Krokodiles in its inventory. Two in flying condition, and one on static display as a gate guard. As far as we know, these are the only MI-24s on public display in the United States.
I will put a link in the comments for those that might be interested in this aircraft.
Thanks for looking,
