Il-28, S.V.Ilyushin 'Beagle'/'Mascot'

(47k) From Ned Avejic collection;

The first Soviet mass production jet bomber. It was an orthodox design with a straight wing, swept tail plane, and two big underwing engines, copies of the Rolls-Royce Nene. It was a successful type that was exported to over 20 countries.

Now last 5 Soviet-built Il-28's may be still in service with Egypt, but some 650 Chinese Hong-5 are in service with China, N.Korea and Romania.
