Tu-154 and IL-86 Russian Planes from Inside

Posted on April 13, 2014 by tim

Two planes  – TU-154 and Il-86. These were two of the most popular passenger planes in the USSR. They made tens of flights each day from Russia to other countries and tens of national flights as well. What are they in detail and what do they hold inside?

The Tu-154 was developed in the late 1960s to replace the outdated Tu-104, AN-10 and IL-18

This is three motored turbojet aircraft for medium-haul lines

The Tu-154M modification operated since 1984, and was produced until 2012.

The main landing gear equipped with disc brakes and cooling fans. During the flight, the landing gear retracted into special gondolas on the wings.

At the rear of the aircraft there is an economy class cabin with about a hundred seats.

    Nice aeroplanes, I would love to fly on some of this type. Did you notice the word “stewardess”? It seems Russians have come to speak English more natural than native speakers; in America and the rest of the western world this word is forbidden, due to the mass madness of “political correctness”.

    Does nobody else see the irony of seating for different classes on an old soviet airplane?

  3. Douglas says:

    All governments are very concerned with enforcing class rules….not eliminating them. The Soviet era was all about having very rigid class separation. The rich elite sit in nice big seats and the poor sit in little seats. These are the rules of all societies worldwide.

    No, because government officials could fly first or business class.

    There’s an interesting article about the TU-154 on an airliner modelling web site in which the author likens the Boeing 727 to a Fiat Seicento in comparison to the Tupolev’s Ferrari …


    … cool!
