Although the TU-144 went into commercial passenger service with Aeroflot in late 1975, it was retired from passenger service in 1978 and used as a commercial cargo transport until 1983, when it was then used by the Soviet Space Program to train pilots, followed by NASA, who used the aircraft for supersonic research until it was finally retired from service in 1999.
