In 1960-70 they made a great contribution into technical development throughout the entire world. The USSR also produced unique models that could never be repeated. The TU-144 is a work of mechanical art. Today we'll board the airplane Tu-144, tail-number 77107.
The plane can be viewed by anybody in Kazan.
Unfortunately, the space occupied by the airplane makes it inconvenient to take good photos of it.
The teacher of the airplane construction and engineering department Aleksey Ivanovich will tell us about the history in details.
Long time ago there existed a nuclear-weapon state USSR and people were troubled by the fact that they couldn't not fly high in the sky.
