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

A visitor from Finland posted Mon October 18, 2010:
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.

Geee... amazing. i always thought that russia made the best looking aircraft. the scenery in this picture along with the majestic apperance of the aircraft make this picture superb.
my salutes to the potographer for teh shot and russians for creating such a plane...

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.

To visitor from United States: red star isn't a symbol, it is spirit!

A visitor from United States posted Wed March 29, 2006:
Excellent photo of a classic. However I must ask, why is Russia still using the Soviet red star?

A visitor from Brazil posted Thu March 2, 2006:
