[COLUMN] 1991 Ilyushin IL76's at MST. Aeroflot IL-76T CCCP-76528.

The first IL-76's at MST belonged to the Swiss/Russian airliner Metro Cargo in the spring of 1991( See further down in the MST-Aviation column ). In the summer of that year Aeroflot started with the, so called, Sea-Air flights from Maastricht to Vladiwostok. As the IL-76's mostly appeared during weekdays I had no chance to capture them, apart from the CCCP-76437 what became a bad shot. During the Europtop of 1991 there was also a Aeroflot IL-76 in. In fact, it came in right after the Olympic B747 that day.
Initially the Sea-Air flights didn't last that long as Aeroflot quit flying the route in 1992. But Yakutavia took it all over as we will see in one of the next episodes of this column...

Here you see Aeroflot IL-76T CCCP-76528 rolling down the 04 towards the B-apron.

No, Guido, that's not a bad shot at all! Interestingly, this IL-76 is marked as a model T while it is obviously an MD series...
Further IL-76 pictures you can find in the thread .
