Wings of Russia (2008): S01E09 – Civil Aircraft – The Air Carriers


Wings of Russia is an 18-part documentary hosted by Alexander Loginov, published by Wings TV in 2008, with English narration.


March 1956. Great Britain is getting ready for the visit of Nikita Khrushchev – leader of the country which was by that time practically closed for the West. Right on the eve of this event, TU-104 – the Russian jet air liner landed in London. Three days later two more beauties of the same kind flew in. It was a sensation! The British “Comet” did not fly. The American jet firstlings were still under construction. And there you are – three Russian aircraft at a time! The Queen confessed that every time upon hearing the unusual turbines’ rumble, she got out to the balcony to see the Russian wonder… It all started half a century before the events described above.
