I was wondering is that an AA 777 in the background missing an engine? I know that the route is now run by a 767, and I dont think I remember hearing anything about an AA 777 having issues n Russia. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Looks more like IL86 in old-Aeroflot style livery

Given that this is DME, could it be an IL86?.

That is not a AA 777, look at the wing closely and you will see the RA part of the reg number. And that is not a Boeing 777 pylon. it looks to thin.

The blue paint around the windows is characteristic of the old Aeroflot livery.

I think it was the slope of the "forehead" that looks very 777-esque to me. Thanks fr the clarification.

This is IL86 which will be scrapped soon... Nothing could be seen as AA 777....

I actually thought it was an Airbus A300 at first glance.

But knowing AA doesn't fly the Airbus into DME it def wasn't that.

Very interesting.

Actually yes, the color scheme line and the 777 esque body looks just like an AA 777.

Like someone mentioned, it has RA reg, so it is not AA. furthermore, that wheel cover definately does not belong to a 777, more like IL-86.....

I pretty sure it's one of the stored Domodedovo IL96s.
AFAIK there are no stored IL86 in ex Aeroflot cls in Domodedovo.

The IL96 is the most logical answer, the visible pylon is too far out from the fuselage to be a 772. Obviously IMO a quad. And the white stripe below the windows is too thin to be AA's livery.

Pretty good find. That picture was a little tricky...reminded me of Wheres Waldo or where you have to pic something very specific out.

I knew it wasnt a 777 because of the multiple (what exactly do you call these..) sticks coming out from under the flaps that facilitate their movement. The 777 has 3 and the aircraft in that pic has several...as would an Airbus A300.

Well....now we know!

Flap track fairings, some people call them "wing knuckles" too.

But I agree, it has to be a IL-86, you can just barely see the beginning of the inner pylon.

No doubt it's IL-86. Hardly SU at DME

Really amazing that IL-86 looks completely different with the missing outer engine!

Thanks, AA77223!
Sometimes we should look at usual things to be something truly astonishing.

They had had plans to make IL-86 a 2 engine ac. But there was no engines available by the end of the 70ies.
