I'm planning on visiting Moscow for a week or two during the summer. I have some plans to take pictures/make vids of planes. I'm looking for Tu-134, Il-86, Tu-154B the most.

What kind of traffic do they get? What spotting opportunities are there? Which is the easiest accesible? In which airport do the planes fly the closest to you? Which airport has the most of the 3 listed planes above? Can any members here join me to help me out if I come to Moscow?

Well, you could get these 3 types of airplanes at SVO (Sheremetyevo) and DME (Domodedovo), I am not sure about VKO (Vnukovo). The "richest" in airplanes is undoubtedly SVO but there is a large diversity of planes at DME also.

Having been to DME and SVO I would have said DME is far more interesting in terms of aircraft variety.

I heard il-62s are rare at SVO now. Is that true? Also does anyone have the video/DVD/CD with all the moscow airports?

Definitely try DOMODEDOVO, SHEREMETYEVO, VNUKOVO and you will find all the planes you have listed and more. SHEREMETYEVO terminal 1 has a lot of TU-134/154.

I guess im a little different. I would go to Sheremetyevo first. I want to see the new Airbusses and other planes in the new Aeroflot livery.

Domodedovo is pretty easy to spot at though so I would go there next.

Ive never been to Vnukovo.

SVO2 has a restaurant on level 5 which offers good views of the apron / ramps and SVO1. Photography is through glass and I would advise caution. I was there as part of an organised trip and official permission had been granted prior to arrival. It may be worth you writing in advance of your trip.

SVO1 - not been inside of but most movements can be see from SVO2 although a long lens will be needed.

DMW - new terminal (compared to SVO) lots of movements and variety including some european airlines such as Swiss & BA No views from inside but
no problems when outside although it does help not to be too obvious

VNK - again no views from inside and caution needed if you are going to walk far. This is home base of Rossiya - Russian State Transport for VIP's etc and security will be tight if a VIP is on the move.

English First, British Second, european Never!
