I remember being down at Rockaway (Breezy Point) in Oct 1960 when I heard the most god-awful noise! Soviet premier Nikita Khrushchev was coming in a TU-114 (the civil variant of the 95) to address the UN. The engines were screaming. I thought it was the most beautiful plane I had ever seen until I watched (and heard!) the Concorde take off from JFK

View, light, I like this ... and the plane :)

The aircraft with the most controversies when it flies. great! 5/5

Nice photo of the big bad bear

A visitor from Belgium posted Sun June 7, 2009:
I think I'm gonna move to Norway. I would like to see bears flying over weekly, and hear them!!!

A visitor from Norway posted Tue February 24, 2009:
Crisp and clear shot! These intercontinental nuclear bombers are flying down our coastline almost weekly now, escorted by MIG-29s and SU-27s. -Norway

A visitor from France posted Mon July 7, 2008:
... wooow...
this plane looks slightly like a flamingo, very high on his landgear but incredibly elegant in flight. I've heard that it is the faster plane ever made with propeller...

A visitor from United States posted Tue August 28, 2007:
Awesome plane - a classic! Very crisp picture too!

A visitor from Serbia And Montenegro posted Fri November 10, 2006:
It's looks so dangerous

A visitor from Spain posted Sat June 24, 2006:
I think the Tu-95 is like the logical continuation of WWII heavy bombers. If I'm not wrong, the design is, in some way, based in the B-29, although stretched and adapted to Soviet technology in the 50s. Hence why this bird looks so superlative.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu May 25, 2006:
Ah the good old Bear...why pay for a vibra-bed, when you could join the Red Air Force and get a vibra plane for free?!

A visitor from United States posted Sun May 21, 2006:
The grand dame of soviet era intercontinental bombers. supposedly the guys flying in fighters next to them could feel the tremendous vibration of the contrarotating turboprops.

A visitor from Brazil posted Wed May 3, 2006:
It's a weird machine! Does it still fly? I didn't understand this kind of engine, as well... Why does it have two propellers in each engine?

A visitor from Russian Federation posted Tue May 2, 2006:
This is heavy long-range soviet bomber with characteristics same to early B-52. One of the most high-speed turboprops ever built!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue May 2, 2006:
A solid and vibrant pic ,gives a feeling of size and dynamic strength

A visitor from Mexico posted Tue May 2, 2006:
Tupolev´s great piece. Those contraprops rule! T.B.

A visitor from Finland posted Tue May 2, 2006:
One of the strangest-looking planes I've ever seen in airliners!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue May 2, 2006:
If you could get a 4x4 aircraft, this would be it!!! Check out the size of undercarriage compared to the rest of the plane! Great photo.

A visitor from United States posted Tue May 2, 2006:
What a gangly and strange looking airplane! Still, it somehow manages to look sleek and powerful--an ugly duckling in the process of metamorphosing into a glorious swan might give a similar impression.

A visitor from Malaysia posted Tue May 2, 2006:
The rarity of the shot makes it excellent. How many Tu95's do you see floating around now? How many huge turboprop aircraft - military or civil, do you get to wander around? Does it not make you want to get up close and personal with a set of spanners and screwdrivers?

A visitor from - posted Tue May 2, 2006:
I'm always impressed by the speed of this propeller-driven bird. A very intriguing airplane with those huge counter-rotating props.

A visitor from United States posted Tue May 2, 2006:
hope it doesnt take out some beverly hills houses!

A visitor from United States posted Tue May 2, 2006:
Wow those russians and there ugly planes. even tupoluves are ugly

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue May 2, 2006:
Looks like a plastic toy! Very nice though

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue May 2, 2006:
Lol can it even fly ? :p

A visitor from United States posted Mon May 1, 2006:
That's an odd looking bird.

A visitor from Norway posted Mon May 1, 2006:
HAHA, what a ridicolus plane

A visitor from United States posted Mon May 1, 2006:
Nothing beats Russian hardware!
