    Those Crazy Russians

    I was searching for incoming KEWR flights on Flightradar24 and saw a random flight from the Russian Air Force (not into Newark).

    I don't know how to screen shot, sorry for the crappy quality.

    How weird is this?

    A Rossiya Tu-204 doing big circles over the motherland at 30k is what it looks like. Strange.

    It could be a test flight of the tu-204 spy version

    Spy stealth fail.


    actually that's a win. Those Russian planes are so ugly to begin with, I doubt anyone would suspect a thing.

    there is a brutal beauty about them, I have shared the ramp and sky with everything from the AN12 to the AN124, Rossiya has its many issues,but they can certainly create some quality freighters !!!
    The beehive hummm of the JT9D and GE CF680C2,the thunder of the JT8D-17,the rumble of the PW1830 and the high ,thin whine of the PW 545A are all music to my ears!

    they could be flight-checking navaids
    it is mathematically impossible for either hummingbirds, or helicopters to fly. fortunately, neither are aware of this.
