Yes, they are real!

Some are pointing downward because the Museum probably thought that they would look more interesting that way.

The pictured Museum in Sinsheim recently also became the resting home for the AF Concorde F-BVFB.

Jetmek319,

Nope your not blind. It is a real TU-144

Here you can see it on a barge on its way out of Moscow.
