Thanks for the pic. But it is a shame that a country which gave so much contributions to aviation like Russia destroys its own monuments. First was the Tu-114 in Vnukovo, now the Tu-154 and Yak-42 prototypes in VDNKh. Really sad.

I Shall include the picture into my collection of avia-photos and every time I watch one I shall be mourning the infamous death of the very first prototype. At leat they could have waited till the October, 4th ---- It's a jubilee, 40 years since THAT VERY machine took the very first flight. The birthday of Tu-154. That could show some respect to The Thing... if storage wants that lot of money.

Sad, but this airplane was not exactly a monument. For many years it was demonstrated at the "Exhibition of Achievements of Science and Technology"; it was never meant to be there forever. This aircraft was an achievement in 1970-80s; maybe it is time to move on and put up something recent, like the Tu-334, for example.

Very-very sad shot... I recall my dad taking me to VDNKH some 30 years ago, I remember taking one of my first girlfriends kissing next to this beauty... I remember very friendly guy who was in charge of this museum installation helping us alot with making a movie on Tu-154...

And despite the efforts of people's organization to save this one-of-the-first planes intact, it is now sawn to dust...

SO SAD (((((((((((((
