Tu-22M-3 Backfire, Ukrainean AF
Must have been a great sight: the mighty Tupolev Tu-22M-3 Backfire of the Ukrainean Air Force taking-off with the blue burning afterburners after having participated to the Royal International Air Tatto. This particular example is of 185TBAP and wore the blue code 80.
