Great question. Could Tacoma be a fueling stop only?

Perhaps it is a typo and not Aeroflot as it only uses IL62Ms on rare charter flights. Also, none of Aeroflot's services go via Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, and certainly there are no civilian charters to Andrews AFB. It is probably a government official on one of GTK Rossiya's IL62Ms that are reserved for state functions...

Damn, right when I leave SEA! I saw an IL62 at SEA once when I worked for QX. Pulled into one of the Bravo gates when DL used to be there. Must be a charter, but too bad we have no pics! Would be great to see! Thanks for the info clickhappy  Smile , reminded me of good ol' Seattle!

TCM is McChord Air Force Base, and ADW is Andrews Air Force Base. Obviously some sort of Russian military charter flight.
