The February, 1994 issue of Flying magazine has an article on the
Moscow airshow, held at Zhukovsky Airfield, "the U.S.S.R.'s equivalent
of Edwards Air Force Base", according to the article. They also state,
"The TU-144 ... was built at Zhukovsky. Four are still there (five if
you count the one in the boneyard), and two still fly regularly on
ozone research missions."
