Caption: Andrei Nikolayevich Tupolev (1888-1972), Soviet aircraft designer, holding an aircraft model. 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, but after Kruschev was removed in 1964, the ageing Tupolev lost his positions of power to rivals such as Ilyushin. Photographed in Russia, in 1969.
