    the tu114 never had an accident involving fatality, and that plain was in service for ~ 35 years. I believe around 32 were built.

    TU114 was propeller driven – that picture is either a TU104 or TU124. Huh?

    And according to aviation-safety.net, there was one fatal TU114 crash.

        Location: Moskva-Sheremetyevo Airport (SVO) (Russia)

        Departure airport: Moskva-Sheremetyevo Airport (SVO/UUEE), Russia
        Destination airport: Conakry Airport (CKY/DGCY), Guinea
        It was snowing as Aeroflot’s inaugural service to Conakry (CKY) and Brazzaville (BZV) was prepared for departure. The runway was cleared, but not the entire width. Snow on the runway edges was limiting the visibility of the runway edge lights. Upon takeoff, the Tu-114 struck a snow drift with the left main undercarriage. The pilot banked the plane to the right, causing the nr.3 propeller to strike the runway. The airplane crashed and caught fire.
