Think this OK Jet is a Tu134, the only TU photo I've got - if in fact it is a Tu134 :roll:

I do miss seeing the Tu134s and Tu154s, when I started spotting in the Mid 90s, Birmingham saw regular visits by Balkan, VIM & Kyrghyzstan Airlines Tu154s and I do regret not getting a couple of snaps of them

Fortunate enough to fly on a CSA TU-134 from Prague to London in April 1977. Nice aeroplane to fly in. Was 1989 before I flew on another example from Riga to St Petersburg of Aeroflot. My only flight in a Tupolev 154 was the scariest flight I have ever taken. Just glad to get down that day in once piece. Thanks for posting the OK jet.

Seen at Burgas airport on Bulgaria's Black Sea coast. A collection of Bulgarian registered aircraft (Burgas Aviation Museum) can be seen in a field next to Burgas airport. The small plane in front of the Tupolev Tu-154B2 airliner (LZ-BTU) is an Antonov An-14A utility.

Great shot of the Via Tu154, doesn't seem that long ago that these and the Balkan examples were regular visitors to the UK
