Comments

After the decision to develop only LNG-fulled dual engines ( and not LH2 ones) the TU 156 should be developed as the next production prototype of a cryogenic airplane until 2005. Based on the crygenic concepts and experiences of the TU 155 and TU 156 the TU 244 / TU 2000 should be commercialised between 2010 and 2015. But, these airplanes have never been developed.
