That's a What?

So why is that B-29 up there all dressed up like some kinda Commie aircraft?

Uh, that's not a B-29, it's actually a Tupolev Tu-4. So the Soviet-era markings are absolutely correct.

Peter over at Bayou Renaissance Man has the story.

And an interesting tale it is!

As Buck might say, "I had no ideer..."


  1. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

    BTW, wasn't it just a few days ago you were looking at a quarter million? Looks like 300K isn't far away! Well done, KUTGW!

    1. Indeed it is. Stalin, while evil, was not stupid.

      Yeah, I know (vis a vis the blog traffic). Averaging 1000+ hits a day. I must be doing something right.

      Thanks Juvat.

  2. As Buck might say, "I had no ideer..."

    Well, I DID have an ideer in this particular case.

    1. Not suggesting you didn't. Just stealing your lovely phraseology, as I am wont to do.

      Not surprised at all that you knew about the Tu-4. Your depth and breadth of knowledge never fails to amaze me Buck.

      It's why you're the Master and I, the humble student.


Just be polite... that's all I ask. (For Buck)
Can't be nice, go somewhere else...
