    A couple include the TU-95, including the comment about submariners being able to hear them. Here and here.

    All of the pictures with the captions, including some exotic stuff, are here.

    I like the comment about this one.

    Two Ka-50 flying in formation. These helicopters are extremely unique in their construction (no rear rotor) and have ejection seat capability. During an ejection sequence the rotor blades shoot off with explosive charges, and the cockpit is jettisoned allowing a safe exit for the pilot.
