    Tu 144 and Sukhoy interceptors

    by el_ruso Written Jul 12, 2007

    Tu 144 was the first supersonic passenger jet, developed faster and before the British Concorde. It enjoyed service on the Moscow-Almaata route, but was put out of commission due to high operating costs and lack of infrastructure. Russian firms are developing at this time supersonic jets for the new millenium.

    Sukhoy interceptors were designed to stop missiles and high-speed aircraft from entering the Soviet airspace.

    Guide!

    by el_ruso Written Jul 12, 2007

    Even though - surprisingly - the Monino museum is one of the few museums where there is posted info in English, I recommend hiring a guide. Mine was a retired colonel, extremely friendly and knowledgeable, but I forgot his name.
