Did this thing ever fly, or was it just a mock-up?

Nice workmanship. It looks like a voc-tec project.

You know, I think the little yellow arrow is a design feature that just ties the whole airplane together.

Well, you can look at it from two perspectives; imitation is the sincerest form of flattery or, from an R&D perspetive, let the other guy jump the hurdles, then follow in their footsteps. The C-141 flew a seven years before the IL-76. Then, the designers at Ilyushin said, "Hey, great idea. Let's do that, too." and made a plane with a similar silhouette. That saves bundles of money. It's not ripping off so much as learning from other company's successes and skipping the errors involved in R&D.

A visitor from Canada posted Mon June 15, 2009:
Machines (airplanes) created at the same period of time and for the same purposes are frequently look similar. Different designers independently coming to the only optimal solution.

A visitor from United States posted Sun April 12, 2009:
Yet another example of the quality of espionage during the Cold War. I find it interesting how many aircraft from both sides look almost identical at first glance. It looks like the nose droops, which suddenly makes the straight vertical windscreen a little more acceptable. Even today, all flights above 18,000 ft are conducted IFR because they're going too fast for VFR, and once you're on instruments, you don't need to see outside...

This gose to show how desprite the U.S.S.R was in the cold war. By trying to build their own XB-70.

A visitor from United States posted Mon March 17, 2008:
This a/c is probably a 1960's / 1970's design, but it looks like a space ship from the distant future. It is magnificent. Really well done photo.

I was at Monino this summer. It's by far the greatest aviation museum in the world.

Handsome Boy looking sad. :(

XB-70 Valkyrie? :)

What a strange aircraft! If the nose does move up like the concord, then there is no frontal view in the cockpit!

A visitor from United States posted Fri November 30, 2007:
Russia is the winner of the strangest aircraft.
