First, I'm a modeler, this picture allows me to watch different shades over the plane surface, so many weathering information, stain, oil, dust, exhaust fumes.

A well done picture with difficult photography conditions. Hats of to your father. And also, this machine is mind blowing. Raw power.

The Cold War Never Looked so Cool. Love the all metal finish of this Russian Beast. B&W adds to the mood.

It looks like the engineers were partly inspired by contemporary art. Physics may be physics, but this unique shape could only have evolved in the USSR.

What a beautiful Soviet machine! Military -as well as commercial- aircraft will never again have the elegance and perfect shapes as those made in the 50s, 60s, 70s, and 80s.
