In this post I will not talk about the Paris crash of 1973 and 2000, will not talk about the hard fate of a supersonic aircraft, I'll just show you how to look superliner Soviet Tu-144 and the Franco-British "Concord" inside and compare some interesting facts. In addition, I will show a few pictures of Sinsheim museum complex, which houses these legendary ships.

The first flight of the Tu-144 took place on the last day of 1968, the first flight of Concorde - at the beginning of March 1969. In 1978 he was the last flight of the Tu-144 (passenger), in 2001 - the last flight of the Concorde. That is, the Tu-144 was the first supersonic passenger aircraft, raised in the air, Concord - last.
The cruising speed of the Tu-144 was equal to 2300 km / h, Concord - 2,150 km / h. Flying at speeds almost twice the sound, lets you "go back in time." Passengers Concorde, taking off from London at 9 am, flew to New York at 7 am.

The maximum range of Concord was much higher than the same characteristics of the Tu-144.
