In that time, many of you have generously donated to our PayPal account and we are forever grateful. With your help, we've been able to make the necessary upgrades to our server to keep the site running more smoothly than ever!

The meager ad revenue generated by this site isn't sufficient to cover the annual cost of running the server, and we who manage it have never made money from it.

In an effort to continue serving the needs of aviation enthusiasts around the world, we continue to ask for donations to keep this site up and running. If you're still enjoying this website and would like to help us continue being the BEST site on the Internet for your aviation screenshot needs, please consider donating.

Tupolev Tu-160 seen in 07-y menyaet kurs.

The Tupolev Tu-160 is a supersonic, variable-sweep wing heavy strategic bomber of the beginning of the eighties. The first flight occured on 19 December 1981 but the bomber were pressed into service in 1987. Following the end of the USSR, the fleet was divided between Russian Federation and Ukraine, the last one eventually scrapping or returning the Blackjacks (NATO reporting name of the Tupolev Tu-160) between 1999 and 2001. 16 are now in service after the type was reborn to active service in 2005. While similar in appearance to the American B-1 Lancer, the Tu-160 is larger and faster. They could be easily identified as the B-1B Lancer is usually radar-absorbent black, the Tu-160 is painted with anti-flash white. The other external difference is the lack of moustaches (fins) on the Tupolev Tu-160.

Only 36 Tupolev Tu-160 airframes were built.
