The bird in that picture is actually a Tu-142 (Bear F) Long Range Maritime Patrol/ASW aircraft

Wow -- I went back and double checked and all the Google images say it is a Tu-95. There are a lot of other pics that look pretty similar.

Maybe I was mislead? I am doing straight google-fu "in the blind."

But here is another pic that suggests the Tu-95 might be a BIT older than the one I posted:

Even if it is a Fokker in a Messerschmidt, you have to admit it is really interesting looking...

But thanks, I would rather be wrong and corrected than just wander along being wrong.

Particularly given my love of mil craft in all variations.
