Two metal birds in tranquility floating over a bed of cotton, into eternity...Beautiful, melancholic and nostalgic at the same time. Thank you for sharing!

The Tu22R still looks like from another world. Beautiful looking bird. And a very atmospheric shot. Thanks for sharing.

It's not often you see Soviet era aircraft A-A refueling. A wonderful shot of a rare sight.

5 stars for 2 birds rarely seen on A-net. Comparing the aerodynamics of Tu-16N and Tu-22 to the one on MiG-21, you can see the influence of CAGI institute on Russian aircraft design.
