Tupolev Tu-22R: A Beauty it was.

Area ruled fuselage, sharply swept wing; sexy (upps!!, I’ve written that) undercarriage wing pods; stunningly placed engines….; well, one of the most stylist warplane ever made.

Photo taken by Kalinin Vladimir Aleksandrovich, he was lucky enough to be a Tu-22 crew member for more than 20 years.

It was very, very Red.
