TU-114 in Tokyo

In 1967, the Japanese airline "Japan Air Lines" (JAL) has expressed a desire to jointly with Aeroflot operation airliner Tu-114 on the lines of Tokyo-Moscow-Paris, Tokyo, Moscow, London, Tokyo, Moscow, Rome, Tokyo, Moscow, Copenhagen. four aircraft were selected for co-operation: the Soviet Union, 76464, 76470 USSR, the Soviet Union and Soviet-76474-76490. At their sides were coated emblem "JAL" and Titley "Japan Air Lines". The first such transcontinental flight was made April 17, 1967 on the Tu-114 Soviet-76464, which further decommissioning took his place on the eternal docked in the Domodedovo airport. Unfortunately, the parking lot was not eternal. The crews on these flights were Aeroflot, but a team of flight attendants were stewardesses Japanese. In the photo below is presented the flagship of Aeroflot Tu-114 in Tokyo airport during a joint operation with JAL.

Wow, I nearly choked on my Corn Flakes when I saw that shot. What a magnificent one and how so many of us would love one of these in 1/400.
Surely this would sell out and with an alternative fuselage, it could be sold as a Tu-95 'Bear' bomber.

Thanks Sal. Great find.

Stunningly magnificent TU-114, Sal. Love those glass-nosed Soviets. Thanks.

Great shot Sal. Air Canada was a familiar sight at Long Beach in those days. Three DC-9's off to the right.

On this date in aviation history February 9th, 1969; The Queen of the Skies, Jumbo Jet, also known as the Boeing 747, first took to the skies with test pilots Jack Waddell and Brien Wygle at the controls.

The 747 production was not meant to last more than a few years, and only 400 at best were projected to be produced. The aviation industry was gearing up for the age of supersonic airliners, which were expected to to render the 747 and other subsonic airliners obsolete shortly thereafter.

This did not turn out as planned, as the Queen of the Skies exceeded critics' expectations with production passing the 1,000 Jumbo Jet mark in 1993, and became an icon of jet travel around the world.

Great shots Sal!

Glad to see that almost 50 years later the 747 line is still flying.
