Beautiful light conditions and an awesome bird. It's maybe just me but the wings seem to be placed on a very advanced position on the fuselage. Beware of tail strikes!

Very nice one, never seen it before. Thost wings are so much foward, had to be hard to land without a tailstrike ;)

Nice - looks like a Soviet era copy of the P-3 Orion

I've seen a cut-a-way drawing in a magazine -- the entire rear fuselage from the wings to tailplane is an empty tube!
