Fantastic footage of not one, but MULTIPLE TU-104s at Russia's annual air show at Tushino!
The DeHavilland Comet ushered in jet travel in 1952, the TU-104 began the first SUSTAINED jetliner service in 1956.
Landing at Pyongyang Sunan International Airport (FNJ) onboard Tu-154B-2 registered as P-561 and operated by Air Koryo. The runway is far north of the airport complex, hence the slow reverse thrust engagement. The engines are Kuznetsov NK-8-2U with the distinctive secondary air inlet doors to provide additional air. Sorry for the reflections, there was no chance to avoid them. The landing was relatively soft although it looks like a hard impact, kudos to the Tupolev gear design built for rough field operations.
Bulgarian Air Charter Tupolev Tu1-154 departure sequence filmed at Istanbul Ataturk Airport in early October, 2005. This video clip is a preview for the Istanbul Airport DVD released by AirlineTV.net sister company AirlineHobby.com DVDs.
For lovers of Russian built aircraft, this 162 minute double DVD is pure heaven. Aviation videographer Daniel Frohriep takes us on three special flights aboard Hemus Air Tupolev Tu-134s, before the type was retired by the airline.
This double DVD provides the viewer with a true passenger experience of what it was like to fly on the Tu-134. Right from boarding, engine start, taxi, take-off, to visiting the unique glass nose cockpit to inflight wing views, this DVD is a superb visual record of Tupolev Tu-134 passenger travel.
