RUSSIAN COMBAT AIRCRAFT AT KUBINKA
These images are the result of three book projects and several weeks of photography at the Russian air force base at Kubinka. I had excellent support from TSAGI, the Russian equivalent of NASA. and far more freedom on the flight line than with the US Air Force. I was allowed to wander unescorted around the aircraft, climb into cockpits, photograph details of everything, and even had a rack of "war-shot" AA-11 Archer missiles pulled out for me to document.
