This isn't one of our projects but due to the unusual origin of the pic, its too good not to share. This photo of a 111 Sqn FG.1 was taken from the rear cabin of a Soviet TU-95RT during a QRA intercept at some point in the 1970's. Very rare to find shots taken by the other side. Original photographer unknown but the copy was kindly supplied by Dmitriy Ermolin. The aircraft in question is strongly suspected to be XV569.
