Photo Comment

This 144 was the last built and accumulated only 82 h flight time before being modified to LL (Flying laboratory) specifications. These mods included the installation of sophiticated instrumentation, upgraded engines and a crew emergency escape system that enabled the airframe to participate in a joint supersonic flight research program involving TupolevANTK and NASA.
