LOL .... there is no doubt that western aircraft are better made, and more efficient.... Just have a look at concorde vs TU 144.... That battle right there is an automatic winner for western aircraft... sorry lol
Better made? Definitely not. More efficient? Yes. Economic planes simply wasn't priority in Russia.
I'd rather set foot on an Aeroflot Tupolev Tu-154M than on an United Airlines/Delta Air Lines/you name it Airbus or Boeing. Statistically they're MUCH safer. That only counts for Aeroflot, of course.
4. DC-10....yep, bad aircraft. But doesn't approach the 40 fatal crashes the Tu-154 has had since the 70's.
But still, the average fatalities per aircraft-number is higher on the DC-10... Compared with total number of aircraft built, many more DC-10s have crashed compared to the Tu-154. Funny thing is, that the Tu-154 is also operated by countries such as Iran and North Korea while your beloved DC-10 was and is operated by those awesome, western countries you speak of that are much better compared to Russia.
Why are you so anti-Russian? There is no reason to be. The Cold War is over and there is no anti-Russian propaganda in your country anymore. Learn to accept them, like the Russians are accepting you. Stop looking for reasons to bash them, there's enough reason to bash you too.
Just to clarify, I am Dutch, not Russian.
