Do you have the reg? 85720? In my opinion this livery lacks originality. though better on the Tu5 than on the 767.

Whooaaarrgh! Love it! Great tail design, kinda 70s disaster movie but in a good way. Looks gorgeous on the Tu154.

Nice plane Lucien!
I like the reversers on the Tu154!
It's just like driving behind a Belgian army unimog!(smoke!)

Just a question, although this might sound a little daft on my part.

If an airline operates 5 used TU 154s, which they purchased outright, would it be possible to make a profit with Jet A being as high as it is?

After all, leasing costs of new aircraft might offset the cost of the fuel... opinions?
