Tupolev Ty-114 How Many Are Left?

Tue Nov 27, 2001 9:10 pm

When I was 15, I was looking through an old book about 'Soviet' airliners at my High School library in Singapore. I came across some rather rare cabin shots of the Tupolev Ty-114. It had actual 'cabins' like you would find on a ship or train, with bunk beds, a windowside table, and obviously a heck of a view  Smile/happy/getting dizzy I fanthasized quite a lot about what it would have been like to fly on one of these, and it's become one of my favorite aircraft of all time. A few days ago here on airliners, two photographs were posted by Dmitri Pereslavtsev showing CCCP-L5611 at Monino Air Force Museum in Russia which brought back those memories.

Do any of you know where, and how many of these birds are left (all would be on static display), or large pieces of them?? Are any preserved in near-flying condition, or are there any plans to restore one in the future?? Looking forward to your responses.
