Tu-144 at Kazan – just a machine

Tu-144 (3).jpg

Quite enough snow pix just lately I realise, but these ones are livenedup by the presence of a Tupolev Tu-144 Charger (Concordski) in themiddle of them. This one’s at the Kazan factory and looking a bit sad,but as is so often the case all over the world, some people are happyto spend their day giving it a bit of TLC.

This one’s CCCP-77107 and I’m a bit vague about its history. No doubt someone can fill it in. Several more pix in the series here, which translates nicely in Google. I didn’t realise there were so many Tu-144s around.

    Visited this aircraft a few years ago when we got an “onboard” tour. The electrics were still working and we got a demo of the nose being lowered and raised. I believe it has been here since 1985. Also there are a few aircraft and helicopters on display in a park in the town.
