This abandoned Tu-134 aircraft was produced in 1974. Until 1998 the aircraft was used in Hungary and then moved to Russia. Since 2014, the aircraft has been in storage in Chelyabinsk, and in 2019 it was transported to Vladivostok.
The abandoned Tu-134 aircraft located at the sheltered bay Bukhta Muravinaya of the Sea of Japan. Bukhta Muravinaya located in coastal Primorsky Krai within the Russian Far East. Vladivostok, which lies on the hills at the head of the bay, is a major city and Russian port on the Pacific.
The Abandoned TU-134 aircraft was on the landing gear and therefore it was not so easy to get into the cabin. There was a metal staircase at the entrance, along which one had to climb.
Once inside the aircraft, the absence of passenger seats immediately caught my eye. The breathing apparatus used during the depressurization of the abandoned cabin hung in places. Also, two windows were broken on both sides, which made it possible to go out onto the wing of the plane.
In the cabin there were several documents on the operation of the Tu-134 on how to act in emergency situations, the passport of the aircraft and old magazines.
It was much more interesting in the cockpit. All toggle switches and switches were in place here. Everything can be clicked and pushed. By the side number of the aircraft, which is well-read on the fuselage, you can find out its history and release date on special sites.
The amazing photos from in and around the incredible abandoned TU-134 aircraft were taken by Wanderer. Wanderer is a photographer who travels a lot and shares his captured moments with his followers. See more of his work on his blog.
