Air Pictorial 1957-12
The journal of a roving spotter
The first available illustration of the Tu-114 shows its remarkable family resemblance to the Tu-104 and Tu-110. The wing and power group are derived from the Bear bomber design.
Salient features of the Meteor T.T. Mk. 20 are shown in this picture of the prototype conversion, WD767.
Little is known about this Russian experiment in VTO. The engine is mounted vertically and the pilot occupies an enclosed cabin.
