Apparently there is an Il-76, flight VI 4351, currently underway for LAX. When I first looked trackers indicated an arrival around 3 PM Pacific but that's since been revised to after 5 PM which means photos are going to be difficult or impossible. Does anyone know when it is leaving?

Holy crap, I'll have to head over. Thanks for the warning! Flightaware shows 5:25 PM.

Very interesting route it took....

Well....no luck for me. Had to pick a side, and chose the south side. Didn't land there.

Oddly enough, I didn't see it in the distance landing on the north side either, though I suppose I could have missed it....

What tracker did you use? I was using planefinder for a similar flight into SEA, and found it to be an incorrect aircraft label. I think the same could have occused here.

I pulled it up on flightaware first and then some other site, I think flightstats? Of course they might have been using the same data. I find it hard to believe that they'd mess up the Volga-Dnepr callsign and flight number too but I suppose it's possible.

It was a Volga Depnr flight. It was RA-76950

It did not stay long. It is currently enroute to PANC.
