A Glimpse Of The History of the Soviet Aircraft

We have already told you about the museum of civil aviation in Ulyanovsk. Let us discuss some of its exhibits in detail.

The Tupolev Tu-104 (NATO reporting name: Camel) was a twin-engined medium-range turbojet-powered Soviet airliner and the world’s first successful jet airliner. Although it was the fourth jet airliner to fly, the Tu-104 was the second to enter regular service with Aeroflot and the first to provide a sustained and successful service. The Tu-104 was the sole jetliner operating in the world between 1956 and 1958.

    I flew on a Tu-104 from Moscow to Leningrad in July 1969. The plane had to be towed to the head of the runway before takeoff because the engines were so thirsty.
