FYI,
The aircraft landed around 1300 ish , taxied past us while we were out towing and parked on stand 301 ( i think) not to the royal suite. Punters casually walking down stairs, didn't look too important.

Rossiya, the airline V. Putin is using for his official flights, is using different aircrafts like:

IL-62M, Tu-214, Yak-42 (to be verified), IL-96-300PU, and so on.

So he's not always upgraded on IL-96  Wink/being sarcastic

Are IL-62s not only allowed in the EU when its for governmental trips? That would point to it being something diplomatic, maybe some kind of trade delegation or something?

Really loved the days when the Aeroflot and Air Ukraine IL-62s were a regular sight in SNN! That rear wheel is cool!



Next Flight: DUB-BOS (EI), BOS-DEN-PDX (SWA), SEA-BOS (AS)
