This was the best looking body style TU-144 before the safety Nazis ruined it.

I can´t imagine what represented the tu-144 at that time when it came from tupolev´s factory.. obviously one of the greatest moments in history of aviation!

In Italy we call this "the concordosky". I noticed the missing canards and had to read the captions :-)

The prototype of Tu-144 had no canards and differed from the other serial machines in EVERY little detail and unit. It's absolutely different aircraft compare to others. By the way, this machine had four ejection seats for crew.
