Caption: Alexander Alexandrovich Arkhangelsky (left, 1892-1978), and Andrei Nikolayevich Tupolev (1888-1972), Soviet aviation engineers, talking at an airfield. Arkhangelsky was Tupolev's deputy at the Tupolev aircraft design bureau from 1941 onwards. Tupolev pioneered aircraft design in the Soviet Union, overseeing the development of more than 100 models of aircraft. These included the Tu-4 and Tu-95 bombers, and the Tu-104, the world's second jet airliner. The peak of prestige attained by Tupolev's designs was in the late 1950s and early 1960s, when Kruschev was Soviet Premier. Photographed in Moscow, Russia, in 1956.
