What an elegant and sleek aircraft! Imagine the parachute and gear stowed. Truly beautiful!

Braking parachutes? on a taxiway, must be a high speed exit...

Wow! I presume this is taxiing to the ramp...when/how did the parachutes go back up?

The aircraft just left the runway via a high speed exit. Only one moment after this photo was taken, the parachutes were cut off and subsequently collected by a marshaller.

To the visitor from Australia: It does not have to be a high speed exit. Tu104 did not have thrust reversers, hence the braking parachutes. And the air from the engines at the wing root would, I assume, keep them inflated at any speed
