I think that Ruslan Pirogov has committed a "fatal sin" on airliners.net - in other words...he's taken Leonid's photo...if you notice...Leonid says that it's parked on the Pulkovo apron...check out the engine covers....then read the other guy's comment about it...the "flight back home"???
i don't think that this bird is going on any flight unless those are removed...
so, i think that Ruslan took Leonid's photo and uploaded it as his own...

That last picture is definitely taken at Shajah, so I'm afraid Ruslan's pic is a ringer - he's got the details totally wrong. Sad really, isn't it, that someone who wants to blatently copy doesn't even take the trouble to get the details right.

It seems that I'm a new victim today.
This Ruslan Pirogov might have been thinking that always-watching eye of airliners.net community would leave this fact aside, so he was completely wrong
Three of the pictures he has in the database (TU-154s) don't belong to him because they are mine, as well as this Ilyushin 76 photo which belongs to Samara Airlines PR department:

Regarding the photo of the Samara Airlines Il-76. It is indeed a photo of the Il-76 at Samara Airport. I have informed the webmaster of the Samara Airlines website of this fact, and he has given me the email address for the employee who took this photo (as well as the other photos in the gallery of the Samara Airlines website). Will be emailing him tomorrow, in my worst Russian (help me Leonid!!!!) and alerting him to this fact, although I think that Dima will already have contacted Johan about this picture.
This is the link to the photo on the Samara Airlines website:
