Hope these aircrafts will fly one day. They are ex Aeroflot and Atlant Soyouz order I think.
Should be nice to see passenger versions in the air too (maybe in Syria, Iran or Venzuela?).

Very interesting news, and may I say a belated welcome to A.net, as I see this is your first actual post.

I was under the impression that the Il-96-400 pax would not be built, but as they have now rolled out an F version, perhaps some pax versions will materialise as well - I certainly hope so!

Was this aircraft ever painted into Aeroflot colours? I remember seeing it in Atlant Soyuz colours (which looked great!)

Conviasa order was declined. Apparently Conviasa was seeking brand-new IL96's, when these former Aeroflot and Atlant-Soyuz airplanes were offered, they declined the order.

Saludos,

Perhaps this is a tech-ops reply, but I can't remember who supplies the power plants for this aircraft. How do they compare to CFM(GE) and GE and RR and Pratt and Whitney in terms of efficiency and reliability? All questions aside, I hope one day I will fly a Il-96!  goodvibes

The IL-96-400 has New versions of the PS-90-A. From what I have heard about the IL-96-300 and the older versions, I hope these are a little better in regards to Maintenance. The IL-96M / T were to be powered by P&W engines. I forget the model number. But this fell through due to financial reasons, Would have been a pretty good airplane with the P&W's Looked very nice, good to see the Stretch IL-96 in the air.

What happened to the one with the P&Ws? Sitting rotting somewhere or re-engined and flying?

Thanks. I did not think Atlant-Soyuz ended up flying any of them.
