Remark Photographer
CCCP-77102 / 451 (cn 01-2) At the Paris Air Show, retracting its wheels on its last take-off with the foreplanes fully extended. A few minutes later the aircraft crashed in Goussainville after taking avoiding action for a Mirage. In the resulting dive a filming cameraman fell on the controls, and then the forces needed to recover from the resulting dive were too strong and caused the aircraft to break-up. The 6 people on board died.

To the comment below, normally its the captains responsibility to make shure everyone is wearing seat belts or other devices to ensure safety on board

F**** you, cameraman! (read the caption if u wanna get that<<)Such a shame... Till now I always thought there was just something wrong with the Tu-144, but the Russian engineers are innocent!

RIP - Crashed - Destroyed - Scrapped. by member eksath
These aircrafts/air crew were all destroyed in aviation accidents. The crews walked away in some but not in all. RIP.
