David Axe in Danger Room picks up the Mi-26 story, with some very useful comments. The lid is creaking open and the worms are beginning to crawl out of the can.

How long will it be before the British media break clear of the "Defence Advisory" notices and start reporting the news, one wonders. The block on reporting can only apply, legally, to "classified material" and since all (or most) of the information we have is in the public domain, the media have really no excuse for their silence.
