8th of 10 phase release of the Planespotting Challenge!, just two more planes to go and the challenge will officially close! They're rather large too but worry not, the download button will stay blue.

Just like the Boeing 2707-200 Project, this project in particular had setbacks. There are no readily made orthographic livery of Canadian airlines applied in a Tu-144DA, thankfully however the blueprints aren't as distorted as the previous project

Not much new stuff were incorporated in this project, but one addition I was very proud of are the reusable parachutes! Basically its airbrakes placed in a circular pattern so it looks cylindrical when deployed, a piston then pushes it out of the plane. Its similar to the one used in the Tupolev Tu-104B CSA, but much bigger, and coloured to a dashing red-white combination rather than a solid beige. Regardless, I'm glad to have though to add it before publishing unlike last time.

A third round of my experiment alongside the Boeing 2707-200 published with an Atlant-Soyuz livery, as you guys know, Canadian Airlines never operated a Tu-144D series, so this ought to be interesting how this particular community would react.
