These machines are rare target for the airplane spotters and it was a big luck, says Svetlana, the author of the photos, that they got them. One of the most nice looking Russian planes, the strategic TU-22M3s were on a march from Novosibirsk, Russia to Tajikistan where they were invited in Russia-Tajikistan drill near the Afghanistan border. Let’s see them up close, thanks to Svetlana:
