    They still use them. It's one of the fastest propeller driven aircraft ever, also insanely loud.

    There was even an airliner version called a TU-114.

    The IL-18 is more conventional and somewhat resembles a Lockheed Electra.

    If the pilot's good, see, I mean if he's reeeally sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low... oh you oughta see it sometime. It's a sight. A big plane like a '52... varrrooom! Its jet exhaust... frying chickens in the barnyard!
