  1. Top quality photos; excellent craftsmanship on that plane. Noticed the toilet is in a conspicuous place; wouldn’t feel good squatting there!! Wonder what all can be done through the glass in the “cone.” The cockpit is advanced by Russian standards, but still sparse looking… What really gets my attention is that funky glossy teal paint that seems to be everywhere. WHY?

    • Irritating isnt it? Someone once explained it to me, that it had to do with an psycholical study, made decades ago, that the color made pilots more relaxed, or some such nonsense.

      For me, it’s just irritating, but seems a norm for russians.

      Same goes for their reluctancy for letting go of the engineer, navigator and radio-operator.
