Tupolev's first aircraft, and for that matter one of the first aircraft to be manufactured using a variety of materials such as wood steel and aluminium. It flew for two years and was then stored in workshops and eventually hung from the ceiling. What happened to it was a mystery, but it was more than likely destroyed during the German assault on Moscow.

My name is Megan Cummins. I am with the photo dept. at Departures Magazine, a luxury travel and lifestyle magazine based out of NY. We are currently working on an issue devoted solely to Russia. I am needing hires images of Ilyushin and Tupelov planes from the late 1920s-1930s. There are multiple images on your site that I would love to get hires versions of. How should I go about getting these? What is the fee per image? And how soon could I get them?
We are pressed for time- so if you could at least let me know if the hi- resolution images are available, that would be great!
Thank you so much,
Do you have any comments about this aircraft ?
