Badger, Badger, Badger!

This is the only photo with discernable markings, with tail no. 94.
I found these three prints of Russian Tu-16 Badgers in the dollar bin at a Norfolk, VA antique store, and they appear (by size and print type) to be non-official, meaning probably snapshots taken by an Air Force pilot while he was intercepting them.

The first two appear to be of at least one Russian Navy Tu-16K-10 Badger C, given the large nose radome. The last photo, below, appears to carry a conventional nose, although the graininess of the image precludes futher identification.
