Great shot of this interesting airliner.

Beautiful in flight shot of a sleek classic jet from the golden age of travel.

A visitor from United States posted Fri June 7, 2013:
Probably the best picture of this rare model in operation. By the way, this is the first turbofan-powered civilian aircraft, which makes it even more special.

Looks like an air-to-air shot. Congrats. What a pity that I had never the opportunity to fly one of them...

Ah, the Tu-124.. I have never seen one flying, I was just born to late... Thanks for sharing this one, Lars

A visitor from United States posted Thu November 22, 2012:
Probably my favorite aircraft, and the shot is as old as I am. What a beauty.

Great picture. I miss the unique sound of Tupolevs when arriving at DUS....and I´m glad the cold war is over!!!!!

I love the CCCP registration. I miss the Cold War.

Tu-124 is just like wine... seems better with age.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu September 8, 2011:
Superb picture considering its age. A beautiful aeroplane that looks like a scaled up fighter. I remember seeing Tu-104s, fairly common at Heathrow, but I don't think I ever got a 124; thanks for sharing.

Priceless to own this photo! What a sleek vintage machine. I had a Tu124 model when a was a kid many years ago miax707

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue June 21, 2011:
What a stunning picture! i just love all the planes from the soviet era. i spend hours looking at shots of russian greats on here the tu-154 is a favorite for me and this comes second it has so much character just look at that glass nose. my dream is to go to russia to see these great machines for real some day.

Hi guys, ain't no doubts this is an excellent picture , especially that was made over 40 years ago. No DSC, films, lenses etc. Picture is really, really great.

A visitor from - posted Fri March 11, 2011:
Yes the cabin floor is raised to allow structural beams to go through the cabin (because of the engines) ...from german wikipedia

A visitor from - posted Tue December 28, 2010:
Here is a question that I hope someone can answer:
I notice that the fifth and sixth cabin windows (forward -> aft) are higher on the fuselage than the remaining cabin windows. (I believe that I have seen this arrangement on on other vintage Soviet civil designs.)
My question is this...why? Is because of the wing box? Wing spar carry-through? Is the cabin floor raised at that point, following the windows?
Any light that could be shed on this will be appreciated!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue December 28, 2010:
This photo was taken nearly 44 years ago and it is so clear! And it is of a fantastic machine!

A visitor from United States posted Tue December 28, 2010:
It bears a slight resemblance to the DeHavilland Comet. Great photo of a unique aircraft! I couldn't believe this was taken in 1967.

A visitor from Brazil posted Tue December 28, 2010:
Classic aircraft, classic livery ! Excellent photo !

A visitor from Luxembourg posted Tue December 28, 2010:
Wonderful shot of a vintage aircraft.

My Grandfather^s plane.

A visitor from United States posted Sat October 16, 2010:
Love a model plane of this. Hang it up by my bedroom!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat October 16, 2010:
Beautiful plane. I love the way the russians have their own view of how a plane should look. Great engineers. Too bad nowadays a lot of russian planes are in bad state, which leads to accidents and bad reputation. I have absolute faith in the russian designers.

A visitor from - posted Sat October 16, 2010:
BRILLIANT!!! Thanks for this photo!!!!!

A visitor from - posted Sun September 12, 2010:
It more like a painting, than a photo... Amazingly!

A visitor from Finland posted Sun September 12, 2010:
A very beautiful plane and a nice shot!

A visitor from Russian Federation posted Thu March 25, 2010:
Classic photo, 5 stars!
But the plane itself is one of the most unsuccessful in the history of Soviet aviation.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu March 25, 2010:
Brilliant! Looks absolutely awesome.

Looks like a still from Thunderbirds! Great pic thou!

A visitor from United States posted Wed September 20, 2006:
I don't know what's more interesting, the paint scheme or the aircraft. Super detail. And not a spot of dirt on the airplane. Classic all around.
