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.

A visitor from - posted Sat October 16, 2010:
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.

A visitor from - posted Sat October 2, 2010:
It is so sad... So much nonsense, envy and all of it in one person.

A visitor from - posted Sat October 2, 2010:
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

A visitor from United States posted Fri October 1, 2010:
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.

A visitor from United States posted Fri October 1, 2010:
Better looking bird than any current jetliner being flown (and produced) today.

A visitor from - posted Sat September 25, 2010:
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.

Top airplane of the U.S.S.R. !
