Looks like there is an abandoned but fully intact Tu-144 super-sonic passenger jet plane is still there in the backyard on the outskirts of Kazan city. Was discovered by the passers by and later photographed with a flying drone camera. It’s can even be seen with “street-view” map. See inside for more.

And this a mobile shot by a passerby.

Then after the information became public, more photographers went there to make photos:

And also thanks to Alesa, Here is the video:



Seems that despite its age and condition the plane is in technically good condition – see how people on video manage to activate the plane systems and even move the parts of the plane (right there in the backyard).

    It’s an awesome looking plane.. but why would someone want it right next to their house?

    in one picture the nose is down, are they getting it ready to fly?

    • Pom2Ter says:

      Yeah sure, this parking lot does look like an airfield to me and there is plenty of space for it to take off, the wing stuck between the building like that probably would require it to be demolished before they can move it on a oversized load truck…

  3. ConcordeKnockoff says:

    It’s not hidden or abandoned. It’s on public display at the Institute of Aviation in Kazan.

    Notice the MiG next to it?

    is there one in texas??

  6. petrohof says:

    well apparently that was false about one being sold for 11 million to a texan, seems they are all accounted for

  7. Wesley says:

    Can anyone tell me if it’s possible to get a look inside & around this plane? I’ll be back in Kazan at the end of the year, I’d be super keen to have a little tour of it.

    ‘Technically good condition’ ?

    How is that different to ‘good condition’ ?
