Tupolev Tu-144 (first flight - 31 December 1968).
Aerospatiale-BAC Concorde (first flight - 2 March 1969).

Tupolev looks better, flied up earlier... I think it is not necessary to name it Concorde. More likely the Concorde is the Tupolev.

The amazing plane, has outrun both: the time and the competitor. The picture is simply a treasure.

Better looking bird than any current jetliner being flown (and produced) today.

Wonderful portrait of a beautiful bird. But...like the Concorde, the product of a very big ego trip. Very mixed emotions when I see these.

Nobody wants to fly on Russian airplanes... hence why it never made it in the commercial sector... or any sector but the 'historical aircraft that failed miserably' category

It is so sad... So much nonsense, envy and all of it in one person.

Wow! Truly a science fiction space ship. A gorgeous work of art. Russian designers have a great eye for beauty. I hope this isn't the one that crashed.

It's not as graceful as a Concorde, but it's beautiful nonetheless. Too bad this plane's life was cut short by the crash.
