In Pictures: Supersonic dream - Remembering the Co...
Nicknamed "Concordski," the Russian supersonic plane TU-144 is still the only other supersonic aircraft to have carried passengers. It had a much less successful career, however, than the Concorde. It flew 55 scheduled flights but had two bad crashes – one infamously at the Paris Air Show in 1973. After a second crash in 1978 it was all but retired from public flights.
