As our country in Soviet times built the most noisy airliner in the world from a nuclear bomber
How to create the Tu-114 into the Tu-95.
Already in the 1950-ies it became clear that the future of jet aviation. In the end, the whole world started the race on the development of jet Airliners. But unlike Western countries, our country in Soviet years was not to develop the airliner of the new generation, determined to create high-speed high-capacity aircraft with turboprop engines. For basis was taken by a huge Russian bomber Tu-95.
Recall that Tu-95 Tupolev was the bomber, ready to fly from the Arctic bases in the Soviet Union to drop a huge nuclear bomb or 10 in all the big and shiny American city during the cold war. This bomber was equipped with 8 screws, revolving in opposite directions at a speed close to the speed of sound, resulting in the Tu-95 was a very loud plane, which could cause the “rattle the bones” from any person.
In the end our government decided to adapt the Tu-95 airliner to compete with the Boeing 707.
Here’s a look at the video about the creation of this aircraft:
In many respects, the Tu-114 was a unique aircraft, but unfortunately had quite a number of significant drawbacks. Also despite the fact that the Tu-114 was one of the fastest propeller planes, he was not reactive. In addition, the noisy engines of the Tu-114 is not suitable for use aircraft for civilian purposes.
The thing is that the noise level of the aircraft in decibels were roughly equivalent to noise, the decibel level which is equivalent to working the scene a car engine in a few hours.
