Tupolev Tu-154: Among the Stars.

For decades this somehow brutish-looking three-engined jetliner was the workhorse in the medium-range sector of both the USSR and the usual satellites and/or related nations. As usual, not economically efficient in a Western way, the Tu-154s have proven to be rough and “all-terrain” in the Soviet way. Fast too they are. Quite a number of them still remain in service today.

A masterpiece of Russian art this magnificent Аэрофлoт poster. The artist sure made it look sleeker here.

  2. I flew down to Cuba in a Tu-154 in the early 1980s. It was very roomy with comfortable seats and the flight crew gave us a very gentle ride.
