    Tu-134 ... One of the Tupolev "arrows". Legend of a bygone era of greatness of the USSR Civil Air Fleet. The "Forerunner" of the even more legendary Tu-154 ...
    Tu-134 UBL periodically appears in the sky of Yekaterinburg ...

      When he served us he sat down more than once. Pretty boy! And our SU-15 TMs were noisy too!

    Whistle whistle discord.
    Compared to the An-24, the whistle of Tu-134 engines was a lullaby)))

      And in comparison with "124", the cabin was much quieter ... and the film artist was not bad ...

      , as well as a symbol of Russian-Bulgarian friendship

        "smoking on board replaces a pack of Tu." From children's folklore.

    An-24/26, especially during turns at taxiing, squeals like a circular), I still remember how Tu134bl engines howl at startup. And so, if for me, I’ve never met so much more “sucker” su24m and mr, as well as instant-31. There is such noise and sound pressure that even the insides vibrate. Subjectively, even the su-30/35 is inferior to them in noise on the ground

    He received the nickname "Whistle" not because of noise in the cabin, but because of the characteristic noise cone of the engines directed forward. This was especially heard outside the aircraft on the platform, when the Tu-134, for example, taxied))

      When racing engines at 134, if you stand exactly in front of the plane, the teeth enter into resonance. The noise seems to be not critical (they heard and much cooler), but the frequencies on take-off mode are very interesting. But in service 134 - a fairy tale. After airliners like Tu-22M3 - just like a bicycle.

        About teeth, if you stand in front, it’s rightly noticed)) In the cabin, he has a quite comfortable noise level. Not for nothing, the Tu-134 in the cabin version in the 90s was sent to VIP aviation. We had a "daughter" - Aeroflot Plus. She was given the board, which was built for Honecker. I don’t remember the number now. It was distinguished by 4 hefty leather chairs and a longitudinal sofa in the 1st class cabin, as well as the presence of its own gangway (as on the Il-86) and additional. buffet rack at the tail. For this reason, had, to put it mildly, a kind of alignment))

    I had to fly on this. The impression is not the worst. Compared to the AN-2, heaven and earth.
