Two baby busses hold behind cautiously behind as mama "Bear" holds short of Runway 27. This was definitely the one of the best moments of my life with the deafening drone of the NK-12s creating a symphony like none other. Enough said, enjoy the shot.

This picture is nice. An Cold War heritage in a mysterious and foggy civil airport. This is really strange sight to see a Cold War era bomber together with such airliners in a civil International airport. The passengers can enjoy from symphony of the Bear's engines. (Babak T)

Wow, what a piece of history without going to a museum. I would love to see one of these old birds rolling at full takeoff power with all 8 props spinning away. Thank you for an awesome photo of a time gone by (thank goodness!)
