The legendary Tu-134 made the last flight in its history
Now the liner, released in the distant 80th, will take a place in the museum in Novosibirsk.
The prospect of Russian civil aviation, in addition to the “Superjet”, which is plagued by failures, is personified today by the medium-range MS-21 and the joint project with the Chinese CR929 wide-body long-range aircraft.
Deliveries of MS are expected in 2021. The Russian-Chinese liner should take wing no later than 2022, and by 2026 deliveries to airlines will begin.
The project cost is about $ 20 billion - both parties share costs and risks on an equal footing.
Aircraft airline Alrosa Tu-134 made the last flight in its history. He transported 70 people from Irkutsk to the city of Mirny. This is the only passenger Tu-134 remaining in service.
