The TU-154B is the latest
modification of the famous TU-154 airliner. The constantly
growing requirements on modern passenger planes have been met by
improvements in the design of the aircraft which has, however,
retained the best features of its predecessor.
Speed, comfort, high reliability and efficiency in service, and
low noise level are the basic features of the new turbojet
airliner created in the design office which for many years was
headed by General Designer Academician Andrei Tupolev, who was
three times awarded the title of Hero of Socialist Labour.
