  Hi Folks!

I've got a chance to nose around some Eastern European airports next week.

 Funny,   here in the states  I've looked at several Yaks and Sukhois up
close but can't remember how the data plate reads.
  What is the  "P" in M14P?    The Cryliic letter that sounds as "p as in
poppa" is written  different.  The Cryllic letter "P" is pronounced as a
"Rrrr" sound, similar to a trilled "R" in spanish.

And I've read that a new 450HP version is designated  the M14R......... "R"?
The Russians don't print an "R"......

 The M14B is a helicopter engine.  But the Russian "B" is pronounced like
the English "V"
Our " B" sound  is written in Russian as a small 'b" as in 'babushka'.

A " M14PF" ?  The "F" sound is the Cryllic character that looks like a
circle intersected by a vertical line.

Maybe I need a  babushka to hit me to keep me away from these things!
