May: Russian Aircraft

Recommended Posts

Welcome to May's screenshot contest.

The theme this month is Russian aircraft (Fixed wing)

New/old/civil/mil be it a bear in the air like my example below or a spinning yak or landing Tupolev just so long as it is a Soviet fixed wing.

Here's my take on it, please read the rules and good luck

Closing date is May 31st 23:59 UTC.

Cheers

none at all.... lets see what the young'uns here come up with first. All i can say is that i have a few surprises outside the normal offerings in my hangar...i guess the only thing we need to claify is if the plane itself must be Russian, or just the livery....i'm going to go by the 1st of the two options, but for the benefit of the others here Mut can you confirm?

You can talk the talk, but can you walk the walk?!?

Here's a couple from me to get the ball rollin'......

First, a nice MiG 19 being re-fueled:

And an Aeroflot Tu-114 ready to roll:

Mutly where did you get the 'bear' from? I've been looking for one for ages

I've had this one for years, it probably came from AVSIM or Sim Outhouse.

Thanks for getting things rolling Dai, nice to see a picture posted at last :biggrin:

The MiG-19 is from AVSIM (pm_mig19_.zip) and it's by Peter Mercy and Yan Tao. Some of the gauges don't show up on the 2-D panel in FSX (it's for FS2004 really) but that may be finger trouble on my part - I never know where to stick the .cab files! Enjoy.... :biggrin:

Cheers - Dai. :winka:

lovely shot TRB...gives a sense of the sheer size of the '225, mmmm biz-jet for breakfast!

Will look to get the 1st of my 3 up shortly fellas. I'm currently sifting through my 90+ screenshots taken in the last couple hours in FS9 after hopping and skipping through all manner of Soviet airframes all over the USSR... so get ready for my 1st potential prize snatcher!

Starting off with a standard landing

And doing an um... classic russian takeoff, "We've paid for all of the runway, and all of the runway we'll use" :whis:

tu-154mtakeoff.jpg

And ending it in the Twilight Zone

So, good luck everyone, may the best entry win as always :rofl:

Looking forward to seeing if you really can walk the walk.
