The Russians had a very hard time letting go of that B-29 center nose glass section! Like the Stratocruiser, this thing also hangs on to the B-29 tail.

Esse Tupolev TU-70,parece assemelhar-se, a um Douglas DC-7,americano,afigurando-se um belo avião. Pena que pouco se sabe sobre esta aeronave, como de resto,é quase uma icognita,a hidtoria da maioria dos aviões da extinta União Sovietica, ainda que comentem,serem elesmuito pesados e poucos eguros.

What ever what happened to this aircraft? I was at
Monino and didn't see it there.


Do you have any comments?
