This shot has everything to me! First it is a plane that is historical and the angle of view is very good for it shows all four engines and props clearly and it was captured in the golden hour for lighting. If I was going to paint a canvas of this plane I would hard pressed to find a better view. Very nice shot!!

Lighting and altitude with cloud background really make this photo work

Breathtaking shot of this special a/c. The clear sight of his double props above the thick bed of clouds keeps holding my attention much longer than usual.

This is a nice view of the Tu-95 at cruising altitude! You can see another Tu-95 traveling below underneath the stabilizer.

I remember the Bear doing low-level flights off the Philippine North Island as the USAF watched on the radar. It has a unique rumble generated by the counter-rotating props. This is a great shot. I'm curious what platform the photo was taken from, a tanker or another bear?
