CCCP-77102 was the first series-production aircraft and made its first flight 29-Mar-1972. It was displayed at the Paris Air Show 1973 where it crashed 03-Jun-1973 on a demonstration flight. It is seen here retracting its wheels on its last take-off with the foreplanes fully extended. A few minutes later the aircraft came down in Goussainville after taking evasive action for a Mirage chase plane that was unknown to the pilots. The aircraft broke up in mid-air because of overstressing the foreplanes and the airframe during the recovery from the dive.
