This is Kubinka AF base, about 70 km near Moscow. Tu-160 was a part of military show for President Medvedev

That's an impressive amount of exhaust, but when you think those engines were designed to lift the aircraft and however many tons of nuclear ordinance into the sky... The American Equivalent, the B-1, can fly supersonically, so I'm assuming this one can too.

Tu-160 is twice bigger than american B1 Lancer, and with speed of Mach 2,3 it is twice faster also.

That's why they don't need snow plows at Russian airbases... just take one of these, put it at one end of the runway with rear pointing towards runway, 5 secs full thrust with brakes on and that's it...

First of all, this is an amazing picture of an amazing airplane, second of all, regarding the "Russian secretiveness" comment, nothing to do with Russia, each and every army has it own secrets that they must keep to themselves, if every army would reveal its full potential, they would lose theyre advantage.

Great picture, looks like a very powerful plane.

I doubt Russia is far behind with pollution. Look at Norilsk. No cities in America that are like that.
