The Russians aren't exactly known for their stylish designs! :rolleyes:

Here in NZ I've seen Illyushin 76 and Antonov transports, and a Beriev A40 Albatross visited Auckland during Air Expo in 1992. Maybe NZ was even been 'visited' in the past (when NZ had strong military relations with the US and some firepower) by some of the more sinister and definitely grotesque types. But then we'll never know.

Some interesting ones there, I.M. - I wonder what Grumman's laywers would make of the Yak-44!!!

Try www.airliners.net and type "monino" in the search box - many more pictures of weird and wonderful machines.
(esp the Beriev Bertolini)
