  • ​Ultimate corporate jets: Nine private aircraft that combine business with pleasure


    The USA’s, and the world’s, biggest business aviation convention – NBAA – starts in Orlando on 21 October. The event is all about business aircraft as tools – machines to transport money makers directly where they want to go in comfort, convenience and security, while saving them hours of time. However, there is an element of the industry that is more about indulgence and making a statement. Here we celebrate nine of the most flamboyant carriages of the clouds, some of which, sadly perhaps, never (or have not yet) got off the ground.

    Moscow's Domodedovo airport has begun the dismantling of one of the last remaining examples of the Tupolev Tu-114 contra-rotating turboprop that had been standing as gate guardian since 1977.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Pictures-One-of-last-remaining-examples-of-worlds-fastest-turboprop-Tupolev-Tu-114-broken-up-at-Moscow-Domodedovo-208269/

    <p>Moscow's fast-growing and newly modernised second airport Domodedovo believes it represents the future and has already started to win over new international operators</p> <p>Moscow Domodedovo's gate guardian, a once-mighty Aeroflot Tupolev Tu-114 that stands on permanent watch beside the entry road, is the airport's only concession to the past. Beyond this historic symbol of 1950s Soviet aviation lies a polished, glassy structure that strips away the commonly held prejudice of Russian architecture as a concrete-block industry. Until a few years ago a dilapidated relic of the Cold War, Domodedovo easily matches the image of a modern Western airport. Hardly surprising, then, that its management company, the East Line Group, believes it represents Moscow's future.</p> <p>No fewer than 24 airlines have switched to using the airport in the past three years, defecting largely from the congested main Sheremetyevo International Airport as well as Moscow's third airport, Vnukovo.

One of their designs, the An-225, holds the title as the world's largest aircraft. But despite ambitious plans for new giant projects, the region's economic problems mean that it will be an observer, rather than a participant, in new developments. </p> <p>When the huge 171t (377,000lb) Tupolev Tu-114 turboprop (above) flew in 1957, it was by far the world's biggest production airliner of the time. It could seat up to 220 passengers and was the heaviest and largest airliner in service until the widebodies arrived in the 1960s. Lockheed'sC-5 Galaxy took the crown of largest transport in 1968, but the USSR reclaimed it in 1982 with the Antonov An-124 Ruslan, which remains the world's largest operationalhttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Giant-dreams-59888/
