For Tupolev the dream of  successful supersonic transport aircraft, SST, has captivated interest for years. But as yet, only a few Concordes and a couple of Tupolev Tu-144s have gone into service.  Dating back to 1922, Tupolev is not only the oldest of the current Russian aviation companies - it is also one of the most innovative producing many aircraft with special and unique needs including military propeller and jet fighters and flying boats, bombers and passenger aircraft including the world's first all-metal, twin-engine monoplane heavy bomber; the record-breaking ANT-25 that flew across the North Pole to the USA; the Tu-144 supersonic transport.  One aircraft, the Tupolev "Bear" bomber, called the Russian Bear, originally designed to deliver nuclear strikes against the continental U.S., was the progenitor of a whole family of variants that included missile carrying, reconnaissance, targeting, anti-submarine, communications, and test bed aircraft, some of which are still in service. Also the Backfire Bomber and the Blackjack bomber, Russia's answer to the U.S. B-1B.

[Paperback]

ISBN-13: 978-0595425587
 

In September 1976, Viktor Belenko defected to Japan in his MiG-25 Foxbat jet fighter, one of the most well-known defections from the Soviet block. But in that same year, there was another defection so embarrassing to the Soviets that its particulars remained a secret for more than twenty-five years. All media accounts of Soviet TU-95 flights participating in the Okean 76 naval maneuvers mention only two planes. Whenever they were confronted in private, however, the Soviets acknowledged that in reality, three planes took off from Russia, with the third aircraft crashing at sea, killing everyone aboard. Since it sank in deep waters, no one attempted to salvage the wreck. But what the Soviet authorities never acknowledged -publicly or privately- was that the third TU-95 made a bold and risky flight from the USSR to Canada. Because its crew defected, the Soviets never admitted that such an event happened. Bear: Flight to Liberty tells the third crew's thrilling story. BEAR is the product of Vargas-Caba's meticulous research into the Soviet Armed Forces and provides an authenticity few books on the subject can match. His careful marshalling of real-world facts to develop his work of fiction makes BEAR an exciting read for anyone who wants to remember how much was at stake during the Cold War. Nate Braden, co-author of The Last Sentry After years of distinguished service for the country's air force, Mikhail is court-martialed, demoted and sent to finish his career in the backwaters of the mother country. Deemed politically unreliable, Mikhail -forever a Russian but never a Communist Party member- bridles under Soviet rule and eventually plans a daring airborne escape. To do so, he must convince his crew to leave with him, develop a viable flight plan and avoid the potentially fatal attention of innumerable Soviet military officers and KGB stooges. The author tells Mikhail's tale with meticulous care; his account is thoroughly detailed and filled with the depth of research that turns rough histories into credible recreations. Kirkus Discoveries

Biography
Miguel Vargas-Caba was born in Santiago, Dominican Republic. He works in the Information Technology field and translates books in his own translation agency. Vargas-Caba resides in The Bronx, New York.   the youngest of 17 children, Miguel Vargas-Caba learned to love literature and acquired the skill of languages. He began to learn Russian, his favorite language, by singing Soviet revolutionary songs performed by the Soviet Army Choir. He later developed his skill listening to the Russian broadcasts of the "Voice of America" for the Russians in Cuba.

"BEAR: Flight to Liberty," is his first book, which made him the first, and at this time, the only Dominican national to write a book on the subject of the Cold War. Viktor Belenko's defection to Japan inspired him to write BEAR, under one simple premise: What if a HUGE airplane, the size of a B-52, defects to the West? How much noise would that make?

His second book, "Chronicles of the Bear - Stories from the Bear Crews," still under development, is a compilation of stories from the freezing days of the Cold War, as told by the pilots, co-pilots, navigators, radar technicians, and other crew members of the TU-95 Bears who flew around the oceans of the world, in their quest to obtain information about their 'adversaries naval vessels, as they flew to exotic locations in Cuba, Guinea, Angola, Ethiopia, Mozambique, India, and Vietnam.

Besides his literary work, he has also written, translated, and published several articles about the activities of the Soviet Armed Forces, among them:

"Viktor Belenko: Hero or Traitor?" - About Viktor Belenko, the Soviet pilot who defected to Japan in a MiG-25 Foxbat jet fighter.

"The TU-95 RTs (BEAR D) and TU-142 (BEAR F) in Cuba" - About the activities of the Soviet Naval Aviation on the American Eastern Coast from bases in Cuba.

"From the Other Side of the Camera" - A photographic collage of Soviet crew's views of NATO aircraft and carriers.
 

Dear Mr. Dyrek,

Miguel Vargas-Caba AuthorMy name is Miguel Vargas-Caba and I am writing to you about my Historical Fiction novel "Bear: Flight to Liberty." It tells the story of a group of Soviet defectors that I think will, in fact, provide your listeners with an exciting educational journey as it brings Soviet history into a dramatic light.

In 1976, Captain Mikhail Makarov and the crew of a Soviet TU-95 "Bear D" long-range reconnaissance airplane defect from the USSR. "BEAR Flight to Liberty" tells the crew’s thrilling story. Led by Captain Makarov, who must convince his crew to leave with him, the defectors develop a plan to avoid the potentially fatal attention of innumerable Soviet military officers. After subverting command and setting several harrowing diversions, the crew aims for the closest airbase in Canada where the defectors hope to crash-land safely.

This intense, action-packed novel focuses on the age-old battle for freedom, as Makarov and his crew carry out their daring naval plot and final airborne escape. Daring, determination, and the personal decisions that Makarov and his comrades must make during the troubling Cold War era, tell a compelling personal as well as action tale.

I learned about Soviet history and the Soviet military from afar. I am from the Dominican Republic, where I learned Russian through Soviet Army music and Voice of America broadcasts in Russian destined for Cuba. In the 1960's, no Russian language books were available in my country as any relationship with a communist state was outlawed by our government. When I came to the US, I could already speak Russian, but I continued to study Russian grammar. Using my knowledge of the Russian language, I researched the historical facts about these men to paint the story for my book.

I am very proud of this novel and have had several book signings and speaking engagements since its publication. I would very much like to discuss my book, my personal background, and my plans for upcoming publications with you and would be honored to be a part of your wonderful website: yellowairplane.com

I am looking forward to hearing from you.
Very truly yours, 
Miguel Vargas-Caba

Tupolev Tu-95/-142 "Bear"Tupolev Tu-95/-142 "Bear."
Softbound Book.

Gordon. This is the history of one of the world's most awesome aircraft. Its genesis (from Boeing B-29 technology) and operational career from the early 1940s to the present is a captivating story... and one the West has aspired to know.

The Tupolev "Bear" bomber, originally designed to deliver nuclear strikes against the continental U.S., was the progenitor of a whole family of variants that included missile carrying, reconnaissance, targeting, anti-submarine, communications, and test bed aircraft, some of which are still in service.   And now the authors have taken the lid off the story! 128 pages, 236 B&W and 24 color photographs, 12 line drawings, 8½"x 11", softcover.

Tupolev Tu-22 "Blinder" and Tu-22M "Backfire"

Tupolev Tu-22 "Blinder" and Tu-22M "Backfire Bomber."
Gordon & Rigmant. This detailed study of Russia's two long-range supersonic nuclear-capable bomber types explodes many previously held myths and sets the record straight. Includes details of cockpits, armaments, mods and test-beds, likely developments and the force disposition. 96 pages, 100 B&W and 50 color photos, line art. 8½"x 11", softcover.

Supersonic Non-Sense

Supersonic Non-Sense.
Tupolev Tu-144

Davies. The dream of a successful supersonic airliner has captivated interest for years. But as yet, only a few Concordes and a couple of Tupolev Tu-144s have gone into service, on a very few routes, and none were ever sold. This book explodes the myth of large market demand for such aircraft. The analysis draws upon known facts, applies simple arithmetic, and makes assumptions that are based on technical, operational, and commercial common sense. 192 pgs., 6"x 9", hdbd.
