This book provides a detailed survey of the history and operations of the Tu-154 airliner, one of the most successful and long-lived of Soviet/Russian jets. The need for a state-of-the-art medium-haul jet airliner that would succeed the twin-engined Tu-104, led the Tupolev bureau to start work on what became the Tu-154. Sharing the rear-engine, ‘T-tail’ layout of the Boeing 727 and the Hawker Siddeley Trident, the prototype took to the air on 3rd October 1968.
In the years that followed the Tu-154 became not only the principal medium-haul aircraft of the Soviet airline Aeroflot but also one of the Soviet Union’s bestsellers on the commercial aircraft market.
The book traces the development and operational history of one of the most successful designs produced by the Tupolev bureau. It describes all known versions and variants and unrealised projects based on the aeroplane. A detailed production list, operator lists on a country-by-country basis and accident details are included, as are numerous colour photographs and line drawings.
