Even if they try to copy , it is amazing their point-of-view in what is a huge size of aircraft

Rare photo! As to the comment of wishing to live in Prague to see that go past, I doubt you could do that openly, as an ordinary citizen, without courting a lengthy jail term. Czechoslovakia in May 1989 was still before the Velvet Revolution and it was not even Gorbachev's Soviet Union. This would act as a bait to the then secret police.

I remember the day this picture was taken. Being a boy from West-Germany on a 1 week school holiday in Prague we enjoyed life to the fullest with normal citizens already offering us really good exchange rates for west money.

On top of that, seeing a setup like this flying over the city on a nice day was pretty impressive.

Even 23 years later it still feels like it just happened. Whoever took the picture must have had good connections. Thanks for putting it on A.net !

Even more amazing : Now I can see Buran with a 1-hour drive in Sinsheim, Germany.
