Day And Night Photos Of An Air Base

Posted on August 8, 2012 by kulichik

Let’s visit an air base and look at such big planes as TU95MS and TU-160.

This is Commander of the Air Base who gave his permission for taking some photos.

‘A plane is a wonderful creation of the human mind. It acknowledges no authority except for the persons who respect the laws of the flight. N.E.Zhukovsky’.

    I thought the GE90 jet engine was the “largest and most powerful”? – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/General_Electric_GE90

      The largest and the most powerful for a military aircraft ;)

      Wiki: Kuznetsov NK-32 is a military specification afterburning 3-spool low bypass turbofan jet engine which powers the Tupolev Tu-160 supersonic bomber, and was fitted to the later model Tupolev Tu-144LL supersonic transport. It is the largest and most powerful engine ever fitted on a combat aircraft (however, higher thrust engines are fitted to civil aircraft such as General Electric GE90. Such engines sacrifice exhaust speed for higher thrust and hence cannot accelerate to supersonic speeds).

    GE-90 is a high-bypass turbofan. Perhaps they mean the largest turbojet?

    The Tu-95 is, in my opinion, one of the most beautiful planes ever designed, certainly the most beautiful turboprop. Thanks for all the nice pix.
