Tupolev TU-A Berlin-Schönefeld 1992307 viewsDesigned for use on snow, contra-rotating props unfortunately covered by tarpaulin. On a trailer for disposal prior to first post-wall ILA in Berlin '92. Where is she now??

Tupolev TU-3A Aerosled Berlin Schoenefeld 1992 (actually ILA)324 viewsPowered by a 9-cylinder Vedenyev M14P radial aircraft engine generating 365 horsepower.
She had been prettied up for the ILA show, where I guess she was sold (rumours have it to the USA). A TU-A3 certainly changed hands at auction in Jan 2007. Perhaps the one painted as Tupolev 007 in Greenwich CT.
The Russians also had two in Germany
