Awesome Video.

Two questions -

2. Why can't the K be used on Viraat? ( Lack of arrestor cables.... what else? )

Tu 126 was a development of the Tu 114 airliner.

Tu 144 was a supersonic passenger jet - the "Konkordski". One of these crashed at the Paris airshow and another was refurbished and used as a test vehicle by NASA.
