Say what you want about Russians but damn do they build 'em pretty.

Nice looking plane over nice looking taiga.

A visitor from Australia posted Sat September 23, 2006:
Its great to see the Russian Airforce still getting out there and showing up what it has.BTW I thought the Russian equivalent to the B1-B Lancer would more likely be the TU160. Good shot though.

A visitor from Portugal posted Thu August 31, 2006:
Great photo from one of the nosiest planes i've ever heard.

A visitor from Poland posted Tue July 18, 2006:
Tupolev Tu-22 and that beautiful background makes this photo amazing!!!

A visitor from Germany posted Fri July 14, 2006:
What a beautiful melting from the aircrafts color and the landscape and clouds! That makes it really frightening!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu June 22, 2006:

The Missile is a Kh-22. I do not know which version it is soo it's hard to say it's exact purpose but either Anti-Radar or Anti-Ship.

A visitor from United States posted Fri May 5, 2006:
Great shot. This angular bomber provides a nice contrast to its more fluidly-sculped (but equally beautiful) western counterpart -- the B-1B Lancer. Anyone know anything about the ordinance its carrying under the left wing? Some type of cruise missile I assume.

A visitor from Sweden posted Tue May 2, 2006:
Looks like a secret missile test. Or a frame from the next Bond movie... But after a little google research I think that is actually an ancient missile from the 70's :)

A visitor from South Africa posted Mon April 17, 2006:
One is always use to seeing the Western fighters but this shot of the Russian AF is just amazing. Very nice picture! Thx for sharing!

A visitor from Brazil posted Sun April 2, 2006:
Well..., this just one of the 500 output from this kind of Tupolev. I wonder, how about the 499 other ones? ;-)

Good photo

A visitor from Netherlands posted Mon March 27, 2006:
A really rare photo, thanks for sharing. By the way Swedish Visitor you wouldn't feel the same if you would compare the cockpits of Russian vs. US fighters.


A visitor from United States posted Mon March 27, 2006:
Cruising over the steppe ... what a mean looking machine that is.

A visitor from United States posted Mon March 27, 2006:
