Great photo

A visitor from Austria posted Sun November 13, 2011:
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

Love this shot! Especially of an old Soviet bird like this one...

A visitor from Germany posted Sat September 11, 2010:
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.

A visitor from - posted Sat September 11, 2010:
Wow! I presume this is taxiing to the ramp...when/how did the parachutes go back up?

A visitor from Australia posted Sat September 11, 2010:
Braking parachutes? on a taxiway, must be a high speed exit...

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat September 11, 2010:
Gritty, grainy, totally appropriate. A delightful old image

A visitor from Germany posted Sat September 11, 2010:
What an elegant and sleek aircraft! Imagine the parachute and gear stowed. Truly beautiful!

Thank you very much for a picture! It is pleasant to see Tu-104 with parabrakes. C.C.C.P.
