There were many more IL-86's repainted in the GPA/Expressair paintshop, but one of the IL-86 highlights was this Siberia IL-86, who came in in Aeroflot livery. Actually totally unexpected it left the paintshop on a Saturdaynoon late in March, while a happy few aviation enthusiast were waiting on a American International Airways B747 ( N625PL ) who was delayed. While waiting for that Queen, the hangardoors were suddenly opened and to our surprise the IL was pushed and pulled pretty fast to it's parkingposition on the C-ramp. So we had the opportunity to take some pics while the RA-86105 was pulled up towards it's parkingpostition.
Now...who was bigger...That SkyJet DC-10 or those IL-86's...
