RF-94128 / 10 red (cn 35199) I bet the groundcrew member felt the massive power of the Bear's huge counter-rotating propellers even more

Amazing shot!!

Just a little detail I noticed. The props are actually contra-rotating. Counter rotating propellers (as mentioned in the description)are found on multi-engine aircraft in which the two engines rotate opposite directions of each other. So technically you are correct because it is a multi-engine airplane but I assume for the purpose of this photo contra-rotating is more appropriate. This is when there are 2 propellers on the same drive shaft that rotate about the same axis but in opposite directions.

Again what a great picture of an amazing plane.

Cool! Considering the man is closer to the camera, and the prop still looks gigantic, means its even BIGGER than it looks!

Big Bubba! What a sound it makes

A visitor from Canada posted Thu August 1, 2013:
That's a face only a mother could love and even then... WOW, that is a big set of props. Not sure I'd be standing so close though and this picture gets you close enough to FEEL the power.

What a large diameter propellers!!, look at its countermeasure sensor (jammer) under its nose. (Babak T)

Interesting photo Andreas - but how close was the guy to that propeller? The camera angle makes it look dangerously close...
