Excellent photo of a classic. However I must ask, why is Russia still using the Soviet red star?

I really enjoy this photograph for a number of reasons. I think this is a beautiful aircraft. My hat is off to the Russians, they build some spectacular airplaines. In addition, rarely have I seen a shot of it this close and a this particular angle. Aside from the aircraft, I find the background and scenery to be to be a good picture in itself. I think the these two components of the photograph alone would make two good pictures but, when you add them together, they make a GREAT picture. This shot exemplies what good photography is all about.

Amazing shot. The ambiance of snow and cold is perfect for this scary, sexy beast. Nice job!

> Freaking huge missiles!

Those are not missiles, they are external fuel tanks. The TU22 is a strategic bomber, so the big, naughty tactical nukes are inside on the belly.

To man from Finland, There isn't fuel tank, actually it's Kh-22 anti-ship missile.
