Description: Both Prototypes and the static test frame.
The Tupolev Tu-334 is a Russian short to medium range airliner that was developed to replace the aging Tu-134s and Yak-42s in service around the world. The airframe is based on a shortened Tu-204 fuselage and a scaled-down version of that aircraft's wing. Unlike the Tu-204, however, the Tu-334 has a T-tail and engines mounted on the sides of the rear fuselage instead of under the wings. With the rationalisation of the Russian aircraft companies in 2009 to form United Aircraft Corporation it was decided not to continue with the programme.
