    i don’t know what the author of this post has smoked, or just be a complete ignorant. but most of the images in this post shows Antonov AN-12 mixed up with some il76

  2. Mick says:

    it is AN 22 (“ANTEY” – “COCK”)

  3. ayaa says:

    I don’t think there is a single Il-76 in this post. The planes shown here are Antonovs. An-22’s. The Il-76 has a single tail. The planes shown here have twin-tails.

  4. Roberto says:

    Nope! The twin tail airplane is a AN-22, the single tail one is a AN-12 and the high wing jet aircraft is a Il-76 (source: “The Encyclopedia of World Aircraft” – Donald Douglas)

  5. Kent of Sweden says:

    Ok, the title says “Flying over Tver….” so the only relevant question is, Are they shooting the airborne footage from an IL-76, what the stills taken on the ground depict is of no relevance

  6. Homerus says:

    The propeller plane with two tails is a An 22, the one with one tail is a An 12. The plane with jet engines is a Il 76. Beautiful aircraft.

  7. George Johnson says:

    I don’t care what kind it is, I wouldn’t want to be IN it up there! Those tires are WAY past their life time.

    • Niklas says:

      No actualy they aren´t, Russian and West tires differ alot. Not a singel thread showing on west and many layers showing on Russian. They have much more layers in there so as far as i can see they are OK to fly.

    Did anyone played that 15 minutes video ? There is entire flight – And yes, it IS IL-76. Dont just look at the pictures from airfield, play the video.

  9. ptc says:

    For anyone with blocked Youtube access – there is a link to 15 minutes video after last picture…..

  10. Osip says:

    When such obvious deficiences as tires exist, what else needs repair on these aircrafts? I would not fly with them!

  11. ayaa says:

    The Il-76 is capable of flying with a 45 ton tank in the cargo bay.

    I remember a trip to Kyakta for tank exercises with the 5th Tank Guards. In the back was a T-72. We landed at Dzhina and on touchdown, some of the tires blew.

    I was sure I was screwed, but the plane slowed down and taxied as normal. Later I talked to the pilots and learned that it was quite normal for the tires to get shredded under the pressure of heavy cargoes like tanks.

    Just another fun day of service for the motherland.
