The following images were brought to my attention by writer Miguel Vargas-Caba.
Author of “Bear: Flight to Liberty”, during research for his novels, Miguel has acquired an extensive collection of Soviet and Russian articles, videos, documentaries, books, hundreds of photos, etc., illustrating the Soviet Armed Forces during the Cold War, as well as the Russian Armed Forces of today.
Among the material he has collected, there are the following images (probably stills taken from a video) depicting a real Il-38 of the Soviet Naval Aviation painted with US insignias for a Soviet movie called “Incident at Square 36-80″ made in 1982 by Mosfilm.
In 1988, a Soviet hydrographic research ship found the wreckage which was broken in two behind the conning tower. Interestingly all her missile tubes were forced open, and the missiles, which had gone down with her, were gone.
