Dear Mr Ireikin,

    I am happy to give support to your endeavors to get a TU 144 flying again — with only 39 hours it is practically new ! However, aircraft that do not fly I know quickly go wrong or need work done on them. All the British Airways aircraft I have been told have had all their fluids drained so getting them back to a flying state will be very costly and I am sure will not be done anyway because no one is prepared to be a Design Authority for the aircraft and that is a mandatory requirement of our Civil Aviation Authority.
Perhaps the French will get a Concorde flying but I doubt it.

    Good luck and thank you for your invitation to the future aircraft opening ceremony.

Regards,

Peter Baker

    «to get a TU 144 flying again»

    Угу.. Он даже не представлял, насколько наивно оптимистичен.
