First flight?

The Tu-204-300 has been flying for quite some time - in fact, it's nearing the end of its certification test-flights and is about to enter commercial service with Vladivostok Avia.

Interesting photos. When looking at it from certain angles below, it kind of reminds me of an enlarger Embraer 190. I hope for Tupolev's sake that this version is more successfull than the older ones.

Backfire,


This is a newer version, that is slightly shorter.

Yes, I know - I'm not talking about the baseline Tu-204, I'm talking about the Tu-204-300 which is its shorter cousin. And it's been flying for months. It's been in and out of Vladivostok on test flights, including some last October.

Beautiful plane!! I hope it is very successful!!

Curious - why not the TU-164? That's been Tupolev's pattern in the past. Any ideas?

The Tu-164 was, I believe, the original designation for the Tu-154M.

What a beautifully proportioned aircraft!

The Vladivostokavia livery looks great too.

Wouldn't it be wonderful if, by some miracle, these planes found a world-wide market? I guess the selling price is very cheap compared with, say an A-321 or B-738. Does anyone know about the fuel burn?

I suspect that even with a relatively low price for the airframe, the relatively limited availability of support (as compared to Boeing and Airbus) outside of the former Soviet Bloc countries might be a reason for many potential buyers to shy away from ordering Russian airliners.

Is the Tu-204 with RR engines still offered?


Firings, if well done, are good for employee morale.

Vfw614, I was aboard this particular aircraft at MAKS 2003 (one of the pics is from there at least) and the interior is the same as pictured, though I think the particular photo on that site has been manipulated a bit. The TU-204 is available from Scirocco Aerospace of Egypt with RR engines (who get the airframes from Tupolev).

Of course, if you want the real history of the Tu-164...  Big grin

Alberchico, who are you to disqualify a famous aerospace company like Tupolev with a long, rich & innovative aerospace history? Pls do some fact finding first, IMO as a student you should.

I simply said that the chances of them selling to major American or European airlines are slim so they have to find a niche in poor underveloped countries. They will never penetrate established airbus and boeing markets . They have to sell somewhere else.

Alberchico, the US market isn't the focus market these days. An increasing percentage of the 2.5 Billion Asians is beginning to take flights & many (East) European & MEA Countries won't hesistate if they see a good aircraft for a good price..

vfw614

yes, the photo of the video screens is definitely altered. they obviously added a fake image after the interior photo was taken to make it seem as if it were showing a movie.

A nice looking airplane. I hope the aircraft is successful, it would be nice to see an alternative to Airbus and Boeing doing well. What kind of passenger capacity and range does it have? It looks like a 150 pax or so capacity which would put it up against the A320 and the 737-800.

Cheers, Ralph

It's a beautiful plane once it gets in the air. Something odd looking about it when it's on the ground though.

25 Post contains images FoxBravo : I love that Fisher-Price site! Especially all the historical "photos." Thanks for the good laugh.
26 Hmmmm... : Do Russian manufacturers use western suppliers and subcontractors, or is it an all-Russian affair? In other words, are the seats Russian, for example,
27 Brons2 : There are some DC-9's and MD-80's that have a similar color in the cockpit.
