Hmmmm, there was the Tu104 which had also the jetengines inside the
wings. It was the first commercial russian jet a/c. The Tu104 was a
derivative from the Tu16 military a/c. It had two Mikulin AM-3M engines.
Biggest problems were the unreliable engines and the pressure regulating
system. However the design of the Tu104 did not even come close to the
DH106.
