The Il-28 (NATO code 'Beagle') was the USSR's first production jet-engined bomber. Many thousand were built (by both Ilyushin and under license in China as the Hong H-5), with some serving for over 40-years until the 1990s. The single-seat cockpit canopy is unmistakably Soviet, while the bomber sat in the huge glazed nose. This variant, the Il-28R, was a reconnaissance version, and was one of fourteen used by the Bulgarian Air Force for that role. Now preserved at the superb Krumovo museum.
