Lucky that the 11-78 was designed with a rear turret

Those gasper air nozzles aren't hooked up to anything. Seems odd.

Respect for these men. I wouldn't want to take a ride in that with all that chipped off paint and stuff. Looks creepy despite the view :D
Great shot though, very nice insight!

So, the RuAF doesn't use a flying-boom for a tanker, what are the duties of the refueling operator? Just managing fuel flow or is there something different about the Russian drogue compared to western ones?
