This review is from: Tupolev Tu-104: Aeroflot's First Jetliner (Red Star) (Paperback)
I am a great fan of the airliners of the old Soviet Union. The Tu104, was the USSR's first jet powered airliner, and was, for a period of time, the only jetliner in the world, providing sustained passenger jet service. The author Yefim Gordon, is a well respected author of many books, covering both civil and military aircraft of the USSR. I found the text very informative and well written, detailing the different variants of the aircraft, which was derived from the Tu16 jet bomber. The copious amount of photographs, some never seen before in 'The West' make this book a must have for anyone with an interest in this subject.
