Training plane TU-134UBL "CRUSTY-B"
Tu-134UBL is a training airplane developed by the Tupolev design office in the early 1980s, based on the successful Tu-134 passenger liner with twin engines in the rear. Unlike the standard plane, the Tu-154 UBL had a special nose and radome designed to simulate the supersonic Tu-22M3 and Tu-160 bombers. This aircraft has the task to train bomber pilots to navigate, land and fly on sensor readings in simple and complicated weather conditions. Simultaneously, the Tu-134UBL provides instruction and training for up to 12 cadets located in the cabin in 3 rows. A total of 90 units were built.
