The Tu-154, announced Spring 1966, was intended to replace the Tu-104, IL-18 and An-10 on medium/long
stage lengths of up to 6,000km. It is able to operate from airfields with a class B
surface, including packed earth and gravel. Normal flight can be maintained after shutdown of any one engine. Single-engine flight is possible at a lower altitude.
The first of six prototype and preproduction models flew for the first time on 4 October 1968. The
seventh Tu-154 was delivered to Aeroflot for initial route proving and crew training early 1971. Mail and
cargo flights began in May. Initial passenger carrying services were flown for a few days early Summer 1971 between Moscow and Tbilisi. Regular services began 9 February 1972, over the 1,300km route between Moscow and Mineralnye Vody, in the North Caucasus. International services began with a
proving flight between Moscow and Prague 1 August 1972.

The Tu-154 is the best aircraft ever built.
|Red Phoenix, 11.05.2012 08:08|
Timothy, I have an answer for that. The Tu-154 was designed to operate off of rough-surface strips at times. The 'six-pack' main bogies spread the weight of the aircraft over a larger area, allowing it to make takeoffs from airports that are nigh untouchable to Western aircraft in the same class.

What is the point of having the 777's wheels when it's hardly the size of the 777.

The Tupolev Ty154M is my favourite aircraft of all time an amazing tribute to Russian engineering at its best,and the Soloviev turbofans make such a wonderful noise too,I miss travelling on this incredible machine.
Long live Ty154M!!.

I flew hundreds of times on this type of plane during the 1970s. It looked like a bus, where people sat on rough seats fixed with loose bolts, but I seldom felt so secure flying as in these ill-fated Tu-154. Hats off, gentlemen!

10.04.2010 Tupolev TU-154 rozbija się pod Smoleńskiem gdzie ginie 96 pasażerów ł±cznie z cał± załog±. Na pokładzie samolotu znajdowali się Prezydent RP - Lech Kaczyński wraz z małżonk± oraz z przedstawicielami rz±du. Czarne skrzynki zostały odnalezione lecz jedna z nich jest prawdopodobnie uszkodzona.
