It has been 107 years, since Wright brothers made you up fly. Since then, man is busy to build up as many designs of airplanes as he can, sometimes creative, some time bogus, but the race of making the efficient design to fly away is not over, lets examine some of the worst or deadly designed airplanes in the history so far. We begin here.
10- Tupolev TU- 144
Tupolev TU-144 was a Russian plane. It was the first supersonic transport and the only commercial plane to exceed Mach 2. The “Concordski” was fast but plagued by bad luck. Three crashes — including a dramatic mid-air breakup during the 1973 Paris Air Show — relegated it largely to a lifetime delivering mail. It was mothballed in 1985 but briefly brought back a few years later as a research plane.
9- B.O.A.C. DE HAVILLAND COMET
The Comet was the creative and jumbo commercial jet airliner and a landmark in British aeronautics when it gave first flight in 1949. Today it’s better known for its atrocious safety record. Of the 114 Comets built, 13 were involved in fatal accidents, most of them attributed to design flaws and metal fatigue.
