11 Bomber Aircrafts Museum Collection

Bomber Aircrafts Museum Collection

Posted on November 15, 2012 by team


We've been to the aviation museum of Monino many times. Here we presented a collection of the museum bomber aircrafts. Almost all the vehicles are in a good condition. Many volunteers are helping the museum.

    “Tu-4 is the copy of an American V-29″
    *B-29. I believe this mistake is due to “V” and “B” being next to each other on the keyboard.

    That Sukhoi T-4 needs a bit of love, it’s the only one in existence!

    LOL…The funny thing is that the Tu-4 is an exact copy of one of the US B29s that had to avert to Russia after the plane encountered engine troubles. The one full plane they reverse engineered the copied the patches used to cover bullet holes, they copied crew modifications for comfort, and they copied the engine problems the original plane was having into the reverse engineered motors they made. Love the Russians!

      What I mean is this: When the Tupolev reverse engineered the B29 the copy they used of the three that were diverted had engine troubles a problem that plagued the Shvetsov ASh-73 engines until 1956. Crew comfort items were also copied as well as the repair patches to the outside skin of the plane. A former crewman of one of the B29’s noted to Boeing after a visit to Moscow and a viewing of one of the Tu-4 noted that the cushioned bench he built was built into the plane as well as the 8in by 8in patch that covered the 20mm cannon bullet hole above his head at his station on the plane.

    Why is the B25 in the last picture covered with a burlap tarp? Does it have a Soviet secret under it?

    Thy should build a large hangar and make an indoors museum. No need for historic aircraft to rot outside… just look at the UV-damaged yellow windows. Nothing is weatherproof.

    Too bad that they all can’t be exhibited indoors. Rain and snow make a mess of duralumin.
    When I was a kid back in the 50’s, there was a plastic kit of the M-50, where it was described as a Soviet nuclear-powered bomber.

  7. John from Kansas says:

    It’s alway great to see new photos of the Monino collection. I agree that all of the aircraft should be protected from the weather.

    Although much is made of the TU-4’s reverse engineering, the oustanding aircraft Tupolev developed from it has no peer and flys to this day.

  8. I’ve always been partial to the TU-22 bomber finding its design pure. Seeing that T-50 has really turned me on though too.

  9. Kent of Sweden says:

    At least the Sturmovik is indoors…
    And how can you not love something as extremely ugly as the TU-95MS and the T4-100
