  1. Not so bad and actually a little trivial, I work in East, West and Central Africa and some of the airlines here are a whole lot worse.

  2. Tape on the trim doesn’t bother me.

    Anyone else remember when German air officials had to tell the Chinese airline that they could not fix their jet intake compressor fan with tape?

    • Good point.
      I would not worry about the parts of internal trim falling off, but it tells a lot about general maintenance…

    • Obviously, Russia, as a poor country cannot afford new planes thats why they have to use second or 3rd or 4th hand planes from aeroplane junkyard around the world.

      • Miss Punjabi did you eat toxic waste for dinner last night?
        Russians produce own aeroplanes,much cheaper of this second hand trash,post is fake 100% its AIR INDIA plane operating on the line New Delhi-New Delhi…plane is airport shuttle.

      • You are absolutely wrong Indian poor guy! ! ! ! ! !Soviets and Russians produced some of the finest aeroplanes in the whole world.there is no single country in this world who produced so many planes at there own.i think your poor air force is better know about this “truth”.MiG 21 is your “love and passion”due to his unbeatable and superb “performance”! ! ! ! ! ! !.i think if your passion will continue to this legendary flying machine,your hole “FLYING DRIVERS”vanished from this world by the year 2015! ! ! ! ! ! !

      • i’m not russian but the last time i heard russia makes topolovs and has it’s own airplane making factories, and i don’t think russia’s THAT poor not to be able to make its own airplanes. i mean i’m an iranian and even though we’re under sanctions, meaning we can’t buy new american airplanes, our airplanes are even in better condition than these pieces of junk! i’ve never seen an airplane taped together!

      • ‘Miss India’ is most likely not Indian. Its obvious the person is trying to create bad blood between Indians and Russians. Indians respect Russians.

    • I thought the Spanish was funny, too. I doubt they were being that considerate to all the Cubans still stuck in the FSU;)

      More likely because it was originally an American plane, bought at bargain basement prices since it is _so_ old:(

    • Blame it’s condition on the owners not the maker. It looks like it’s an older American Made Boeing or Douglass, that has not been well cared for. Boeing puts those same signs, lamps switches on most of it’s jets.

  3. i think this is not a russian plane. the spanish gives away. it could be from some third world countries speak in spanish.

  4. When I flew to Moscow I used Aeroflot and the aircraft was a 767 manufactured in Everette Washington. I didn’t notice any deferred maintenance on the aircraft. I am curious to what kind of aircraft is featured in this post.

  5. It’s quite common in eastern europe to see vehicles with signs that are in language never used there. Like spanish, french, swedish, etc..
    I think the reason is that eastern europeans are practical and the language in signs has no effect on how the vehicle moves. Whether it’s a bus, an airplane or a ship.

  6. I had a similar experience with tape on a airplane during a flight to florida a few years ago: http://thetalik.net/pictures/florida/hi/1.jpg

    • Maybe now they will welcome you on board and ask to borrow your tape to wrap around the tires, since they’ve had so many blow out lately.

  7. Whether this is Russian plane or not, I have flown in a British plane with Italian texts on the emergency doors.

    By the way, Aeroflot have a lot of different types of planes ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aeroflot & http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aeroflot-Cargo), new ones and bit older ones. For example two of Finnair’s old MD-11 planes have been sold to be used as cargo planes by Aeroflot.

  8. There was a lady on this plane. I was sitting next to her. She was wearing a skirt and my d*ick got hard. She noticed my erection and I put my hand on her leg and worked it under her skirt where I fingered her hot, wet and juicy p*ussy until she had multiple orgasms. I wanted to phuck and suck her p*ussy to. S*EX IS THE BEST !!!

  9. Wow, is all of the hate necessary for this thread? I live in and fly in Russia frequently, and I’ve seen such things (although maybe this is indeed a Ukrainian airline). Yes, they do use recycled planes from Boeing and Airbus as well as the old Soviet Tupelovs. Old planes of any make are going to be problematic, but again, why so much hate (racism, antisemitism, threats, etc.) over pictures of tape in an airplane?

  10. Are you sure this is russian? ’cause on the first pic, “Salida de Emergencia” is Spanish 😛

    Very risky plain though

    • I saw some russian planes(tu134,tu-154)that have signs in spanish,english and polish.so it doesnt make any sense that there spanish is used.it is russian plane.but we can not say it is belong to any russian airlines.many post-Soviet and some others still use russian palnes,like my country Azerbaijan.

  11. this isn’t the worst plance. once i had flight with Kartago airlines (thats tunisia air lines), i was praying all flight…

  12. I tried talking to some Russians about maintenance. They didn’t understand what the word meant. I tried drawing things being maintained. They had no idea what I was talking about.

  13. thats why they tell u to trust national airlines…..
    If the national airlines is like that too… then I wonder hows their railway system…

  14. Nice!, found your post on digg.Glad I finally tested it out. Unsure if its my Opera browser,but sometimes when I visit your site, the fonts are really small? However, love your page and will check back.See Ya

  15. When Russia buys used airplanes from Mexico, why don’t they tape a piece of paper with Russian instructions over the Spanish?

    Except that I don’t see any Spanish on this thing anyway. Where is it?

  16. Your English is rubbish, as well your grammar. You are a tool. Why don’t you just stop using the English language altogether. Then perhaps people would not think you are such a tool ….. no, I doubt people will stop thinking that. Maybe you should just stop breathing. Yes, that would be nice.

  17. There are many cheap and low cost flights, but they are not maintained properly.

    low cost flights to Finland

  18. Air India is similar to this plane. Tape everywhere, bathroom doors that don’t actually close, microseats that force your knees into your chin, and limited space in the overhead bins so that all the passengers are literally fighting each other to get their suitcase in before anyone else.

  19. My friend recently had to travel on a plane through south america where they had to fly at treetop height – with the luggage in the aisles – because the door had come off!

  20. Interesting that all the damaged parts pictured appear to be no more than cosmetic in nature.

    Show me a plane with the engines duct-taped to the wings. THEN I’ll be worried.
