03/05/2005. Remarks by Alan
Sweetman: "Between 100 and 200 Soviet Tu-4s
transferred to Chinese by Russia in late 1950s/early 1960s after the
Tu-16 came into service in large numbers. I believe there are at
least two examples still surviving in the People's Republic of China
- now both grounded. But at least one was flying in an AWACs role
until early 1990s apparently."
