Air Power - The Cold War
Title: Air Power: The Cold War (2000)

Tupolev Tu-142 'BEAR-F'
MiGMan's Combat Diary Being the fastest prop aircraft in the world and having an extraordinarily long range makes the Tu-142 the ideal choice for a weekend away!
Pilot's notes First flown in 1954, the Tu-20, as it was then known, was very advanced for the era. It shared many systems with the Tu-16, but its use of the new turboprop engines with their 18ft 8-bladed contraprops gave this strategic bomber double the Tu-16's range.

Still in service in 2000, the Bear was truly an icon of the Cold War era.
