  • Description

    On December 6 the Russian airline, Eroflat, are introducing a new service with their brand new giant jet airliner, the TU 104. This now passenger service is scheduled to do the trip from Moscow to Copenhagen in just over two hours - reducing the present DC 6 flight by almost half.

    Russian Marshal Pavel Jugarve - chief of their civil air authority will be on the inaugural flight and will continue to London for discussions on the setting up of a Moscow-London service.

    These pictures from Copenhagen show the FUIGA during a test flight for the forthcoming service. It was a full dress rehearsal - except that Marshal Jugarve was not aboard.
