Russian heavy metal (part 1)

Post by flypaul » 22 Oct 2009, 02:05

Hi everyone,
Although Aeroflot is not part of our VA! i would still like to share these shots with you, these are from the first set of the first flight i did for the other VA that i'm apart of! the flight is from Moscow-Sheremetyevo to Krasnodar (URKK) flight SU763 using the TU-154!
Tupolev's Tu-154 tri-jet remains the standard medium range airliner on domestic flights in Russia and other states of the former Soviet Union and to a lesser extent in eastern Europe and Iran.

The Tu-154 was developed to replace the turbojet powered Tupolev Tu-104, plus the An-10 and Il-18 turboprops. Design criteria in replacing these three relatively diverse aircraft included the ability to operate from gravel or packed earth airfields, to be able to fly at high altitudes above most Soviet Union air traffic, and good field performance. To meet these aims the initial Tu-154 design featured three Kuznetsov (now KKBM) NK-8 turbofans (which also powered the larger, longer range Il-62) giving a relatively good thrust to weight ratio, triple bogie main undercarriage units which retract into wing pods and a rear engine T-tail configuration.

The Tu-154 first flew on October 4 1968. The first production example was delivered to Aeroflot in early 1971, although regular commercial service did not begin until February 1972.

The last time I piloted a Tu-154 I had to use a MD-11 panel for it. I know another Tu-154 user who used a B722 panel to pilot the Tu-154.

Paul, can you post a link to the download part? I've tried many times to navigate through Project Tupolev and never seem to find that link. I want to fly this baby before SU retires it.

Good luck. I couldn't get it started because it's so hard. So I just swapped the panel out for a 727
