I've only flown on a Tupolev once, on September 11, 2003, on a Tehran to Khorramabad flight. (Yes, check that link!) As we arrived in Khorramabad I could see how easy it would be to crash into the mountains nearby.

Anyway Tupolev safety is a national joke in Iran so I am not surprised by the latest crash. However, Tupolev deserves some credit for inventing the world's first supersonic passenger aircraft, before Concorde.
