    I know the russian TU-144 did fly one time to Paris to be presented here. But did our Concorde also travel to Russia in that time as well?

    I could not find any information for that.

    Tu-144 was briefly used and only inside USSR. Concorde was used btw Europe and USA.

    Both programs failed. Supersonic aircraft are expensive and not people trust the technology. Standard planes have became well proven plateforms with very little accident.

    Aerflot bets in its entire longhaul fleet on Airbus and this is their first A350, which also introduces new livery and product

    As all Aerflot aircrafts, the jet is registered in Bermuda for tax reasons.

    Yes the good ole Beluga, quite possibly the ugliest jet aircraft ever conceived....and I know "form follows function" (or FFF for those that give 3 F's) well the Antonov-124 and C-5 Galaxy look way better than this aircraft equivalent of the 'The Hunchback of Norte-Dame'!

    Both did not fail. The Concorde put in a 27 year career.
