Tupolev Tu-104A in Czechoslovak Airlines Colors

  Untitled 12  Several good photos of Tu-104A (OK-LDA) in little seen CSA 40th year markings in 1963. And a nice in-flight photo of OK-LDC. “In 1957 CSA became the third of the world's airlines to fly jet services, taking delivery and putting in service the first Tupolev Tu-104A in 1957. CSA was the only airline other than Aeroflot to operate the Tu-104 which was the world's first successful jet airliner”. (An excerpt from Wikipedia.) This aircraft is in the Kbely Air Museum, Prague, Czech Republic. Photo credit: Zdenek Cizinsky
