Why does the TU134 need a navigator? It doesnt have navigation equiptment?
Does someone have to look at the ground in order for the plane to fly? Sure its a nice view from that nose window.

Yes, even the Tu-134 has navigation equip. The glazed nose you see on some early Tu-134 was actually an observers station, as all Soviet-era a/c were built to be used in a wartime emergency.

I do not agree with KFRG on this. Tu-134 came out in 1963 during the time when flying over siberia was a challange and a navigator (still a crew member on most old russian made aircraft) was needed in order to make sure that the navigational equipment are taking the aircraft in the right direction.
