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,
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,
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.

As the Webmaster, I was lucky enough to fly in a number of Russian aircraft, the Tu-134 was one that we flew from Moscow to Norilsk in Siberia. The clouds in the background picture on this page was taken from one of these airplanes. I was surprised to see how much this airplane was like the U.S. Navy C-9 that I flew on also. There was a big difference, not in the airplanes, but how the airlines in Russia were as compared to the United States. We had this plane so overloaded that it would not be legal to fly in the U.S. We had pipes in the middle aisle. We had stacks of boxes in the rear of the plane stacked to the ceiling making it hard to get to the restroom. The overhead luggage compartments wouldn't close. We had the underside of every seat totally packed with equipment for the expedition. Additional clothing and luggage was under everyones feet. Like I said, we had this plane packed. Just after we started the engines, a black car came up to the airplane and the plane was stopped from moving. Several more security and black cars came up to the plane. After a while they took a man off of the plane, he was a Russian. It looked like he was in trouble for something. What a ride, it was great and we all had a good time.
Tupolev Tu-4 Superfortress
Stealing the Superfortress - DVD
From the Webmaster: When I was stationed on the USS Kitty Hawk, CV-63, on an almost daily basis we had a Russian Bear flying over the ship. It was always escorted by two F-14 Tomcats. One Tomcat was on the side of the Bear and the other Tomcat was directly under the Bear. I was told that the F-14 Tomcat under the belly of the bear was in case the bear opened its weapons bay, that the Tomcat would shoot the Bear down. I was also told that this was a suicide mission for the Tomcat Pilot. I don't know if this was true, however.

| Bear: Flight to Liberty
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
