Ultrasonic Airliner On Display – A Rare Sight


Marina Lystseva

Just a couple lucky people got permission to attend – a display of rare plane – first our take on superjet – supersonic airliner that could fly at speeds of mach. Those were Tus, Tu-144s – built in 1970s. Back in time, in 68 – they decided build a jet that could fly as fast as MiG. Like Concord but Soviet model.

The Concord was flying longer – 75 to 2003. Soviet jet just couple years – after crash at Le Bourget – demonstration flight collapsed, fourteen people died that day. But they still continued flying – Moscow – Alma-Ata was route. First they carried mail and cargo, then got licensed to carry us. Even it was civil route they still had a pilot from the Tupolev air bureau – supervising every flight.

Just eight months after line started they dismissed it, the cause was crash. Not with people but another that was tested separately. Now since then it stays on ground – now already fourty years. Windows were made of plexiglass – lost transparency with time, turned to be the color brown. Those small wings that near pilots is unique from the Concord. They could help reduce the friction during landing and take off.

Seven those have been survived.
