For lovers of Russian built aircraft, this 162 minute double DVD is pure heaven. Aviation videographer Daniel Frohriep takes us on three special flights aboard Hemus Air Tupolev Tu-134s, before the type was retired by the airline.
This double DVD provides the viewer with a true passenger experience of what it was like to fly on the Tu-134. Right from boarding, engine start, taxi, take-off, to visiting the unique glass nose cockpit to inflight wing views, this DVD is a superb visual record of Tupolev Tu-134 passenger travel.
The engine sounds during start-up, spool up, take-off power, and the inflight power setting adjustments are absolutely amazing. Nobody builds airliners like the Russians, and the Tu-134’s superbly loud Soloviev D-30 turbofan engines are captured in all their glorious splendour on this unique DVD.
Filmed with special assistance from Hemus Air, Daniel flew on three different Tu-134s for this DVD including Tu-134As LZ-TUP and TUH, as well as Tu-134B LZ-TUT. LZ-TUH was formerly with CSA as OK-HFM.
From the Hemus Air base at Sofia, we fly to Oslo, Larnaca, and Beirut. On all the flights we’ll board the aircraft with all the passengers going up the airstairs and take our seat. The flight attendants give their preflight safety announcements and engines are started. During the flights we’ll inspect the cabin in detail and even visit the rear lavatory to see the Tu-134’s skylight the provides a unique view to the tail. In Larnaca, Daniel takes us down to the apron to view the aircraft up close during servicing. The amazing sights and sounds of flying this amazing aircraft truly make this a must-have DVD for lovers of Russian built aircraft.
