Tupolev Tu-124 - a short-range jet airliner - is a further development of the first soviet jet Tu-104.
In spite of some visual similarity between these planes, Tu-124 is a completely new design. It was the
first soviet airliner to use double-flow jets, spoilers, braking shield and noise reductors. The plane
has the capacity of 44-56 passengers, the maximum range of 2100km and the cruise speed of 750-850km/h.
It was in production from 1961 to 1968 and some 165 units where built at Kharkov aircraft factory.
Aeroflot was using Tu-124 from October 1962 to August 1979. Tu-124 has also been exported in the
following countries: Chechoslovakia, DDR, India, Iraq and China. Soviet Ministry of Defense was
using Tu-124 up to 1986. It was also Indian Prime Minister Indira Ghandi's personal aircraft.|
The package will include a complete set of what one may expect from a hi-end quality add-on.
