Magnificent image of a most elegant machine. Great to see it looking well kept and in classic Aeroflot scheme. Thanks to whoever it might be who had the great sense to preserve it! Unlike here in the US where we don't value historical civil airliners :/

The Concorde had limited success, but it was successful.....however the TU-144 didn't have success, and the Americans never got off the ground. I think that if they could have ended the cold war at the same time they came out with these beauties, that the skies would have been more open and filled with these magnificent machines.

Not trying to be a smart@$$,but if the ill-fated TU-144 that crashed in Paris years ago had to taxi over that tarmac very much. Now I know why it went down. The airframe was shook to pieces just having to taxi over a mess like that. Really that tarmac, apron, runway or whatever they may call that in Russia is really something else.

The reason the American SST never got off the ground was after the design work and the prototype wind tunnel testing was started. It was decided that the huge investment needed to build an SST would not be a commercial success in the long run. As history has played out in commercial aviation, Boeing, Douglas and NASA were right. It should be noted also that the TU-144 was plauged by problems from the get-go.
