What a beautiful Soviet machine! Military -as well as commercial- aircraft will never again have the elegance and perfect shapes as those made in the 50s, 60s, 70s, and 80s.

A visitor from Netherlands posted Fri March 11, 2011:
It looks like the engineers were partly inspired by contemporary art. Physics may be physics, but this unique shape could only have evolved in the USSR.

The Cold War Never Looked so Cool. Love the all metal finish of this Russian Beast. B&W adds to the mood.

For as old as this picture it, its surreal. Great work all around.

A visitor from Canada posted Sun August 15, 2010:
A well done picture with difficult photography conditions. Hats of to your father. And also, this machine is mind blowing. Raw power.

A visitor from - posted Sun August 15, 2010:
First, I'm a modeler, this picture allows me to watch different shades over the plane surface, so many weathering information, stain, oil, dust, exhaust fumes.
