Fab photo of a terrific aircraft

A visitor from Mexico posted Sun August 19, 2007:
This plane looks great!!!... I totally agree, this Tu 144 design is 10 times better than Concorde. It is sad that supersonic airliners are discontinued. Hopefully russians will re-start or increase the competition for big/supersonic airliners.

A visitor from Canada posted Mon November 6, 2006:

TU-144 looks at least ten times better than Concorde

A visitor from Malta posted Sat September 2, 2006:
Really a great pic! Actually the Russian designers had some blue prints of the Concorde, but they couldnt get the wing design correct so they went for the cannard solution which made the aircraft perform better in the end than the concorde. I think they both look superb! :-)

That aircraft looks cool.

A visitor from Singapore posted Fri May 5, 2006:
Its sad there are no active concords and TU144s. At least we should keep one from each a/c in airworthy....

A visitor from United States posted Fri November 18, 2005:
This picture gives idea about what size and how everything works on this plane together

A visitor from United States posted Fri November 11, 2005:
A real bird of prey. The photo captures the dramatic proportions of the plane, and also the sense of loss that it no longer flys.
