    IL-96’s are great planes :) it’s a shame that they don’t market russian airliners well. The new tupolevs are looking really nice too.

  2. Dave says:

    I wonder what it looked like before the glass cockpit.

  3. D says:

    Makes me want to be a pilot.

  4. Moscow Lover says:

    Long live Russian technology.

    I think there is less buttons in an IL-96 than a Boeing.

  6. jmndos says:

    I would say the buttons are equivalent. This plane is antiquated. No flying Boeing plane today has an engineer’s station. This task has been split between the computer and co-pilot.

      To be fair, it could also be a union thing – supposedly even after they could technically eliminate the Navigator on the plane, the Soviets kept their Navs employed.

      Might also be a desire to keep some functions on board – when a plane goes from 3-man to 2-man operations some tasks are also handed back to the ground, and maybe the Russians just decided they’ll keep the engineer and designed the plane that way.
