Massive public attention for the first Soviet jet to land at Schiphol. Unfortunately for the spectators, Captain Pyotr Soldatev did not need to deploy his three brake chutes. CCCP-L5442 crashed barely a month later in the Russian Far East and all 64 people on board lost their lives. Photo by: Harry Pot / Nationaal Archief (Netherlands)
Since 1999 this very rare ex CSA Tu-104 has been in use as a restaurant along Route 248 near Petrovice, very close to the border crossing with Germany. In this photo it still carries "Air Restaurant" titles and "Coca Cola" on the fin. By 2013 it had been painted in period CSA colours, but still with "Air Restaurant" titles. It was still here by 2017.
