A visitor from Brazil posted Tue October 12, 2010:
Nice photo, very nice aircraft, but the Concorde was technically far superior, although this is a very sleek and graceful aircraft.

A visitor from - posted Sun April 18, 2010:
Much more beautiful than Concorde

A visitor from Sweden posted Fri January 29, 2010:
Not to downplay it, but it really wasn't a masterpiece of Soviet engineering. It is impressive-looking, but its service record speaks for itself. A number of planes made in the USSR were much more deserving of the title.

A visitor from United States posted Thu January 28, 2010:
What a majestic plane!

A visitor from Poland posted Sat September 26, 2009:
A masterpiece of Soviet engeneering!!!

A visitor from United States posted Sat August 8, 2009:
She does look better than the Concorde, but she wasn't better, the Concorde didn't need a parachute or those fancy ears and the Concorde lasted a lot longer.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri June 5, 2009:
Tu-144 is my favorite plane. I`ve never seen this photo before and color photos of that time and this plane are quite rare.

A visitor from Germany posted Fri May 22, 2009:
In flight! Ahh finally - what a beauty!

A visitor from Argentina posted Thu May 21, 2009:
The most slenderdized commercial aircraft ever! Excelent capture. Frank frm BUE Experimental 01

A visitor from - posted Thu May 21, 2009:
Best looking passenger aircraft ever

A visitor from Belgium posted Thu May 21, 2009:
She looks nicer than the Concorde, specially without the canard "ears" and with the retracted nose canopy.

A visitor from Portugal posted Thu May 21, 2009:
Straight like an arrow!

A visitor from Germany posted Thu May 21, 2009:
Damn, looks pretty hot with those ugly ears on the front retracted... I always feel strange when I read these CCCP regs!

A visitor from Poland posted Thu May 21, 2009:
One of the most beautiful planes ever built. I think it looks even more graceful than a Concorde.

A visitor from United States posted Wed May 20, 2009:
Nice shot, Aris!
