Il-96 RA-96002 Inside Photos

Are there any pictures of this Il-96's cabin availiable? I am really interested how she looks inside. As far as I can remember she was always used as a freighter, but without side cargo doors, so everything was loaded by hand. This one is kind of a mysterious bird. Was it ever in use as a pax plane, maybe by SU or even after that by 3G???

Any info on her cabin welcome!!!

I have never seen or heard of IL-96 in cargo version.
Loaded by hand? How can it possibly be if cargo bay is filled by containers?
I might miss something.

check out this:

www.uacrussia.ru/en/models/civil/il_96/il_96_400t/

unfortunately no pix of cabin.
here you can find the cargo-version as well (showing a big cargo-door open).
the Il-96 is a beautiful bird, was close to russian AF1 last year.
the front looks almost like the one of the MD-11

If we are talking IL-96-400F it hardly can be with registration RA-96002.
Though they could change reg. number from first IL-96M to IL-96-400.
I am not sure that TU-134A is talking about this new aircraft: it's a longer and newer version.

96002 is indeed operated as a bulk load freighter, similarly to the Il-62's of KAPO-Avia. There is no side cargo door, so the cargo on the main deck is loaded via the passenger exits by beltloader. A daunting task, unloading the beast can take up to 3 hours like this.

I imagine that it's actually a convertible configuration and that the plane can be equipped for PAX transportation in a matter of hours.

We had 96002 in TLL a few times last autumn, on cargo flights from TSN. Also caught one of her departures on video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=COxs1wCc4f8, starting from 1:50).

At least some KAPO do indeed have a large side cargo door and it can clearly be seen on some pictures (most of them taken in TLL). A quick search will reveal them.



Exceptions confirm the rule.

I am aware of the cargo door. What I meant was, that while regular visitors to TLL, both the Il-62's and the Il-96 RA-96002 were used for bulk loads, regardless of the cargo door being there or not.

The three KAPO aircraft (86126, 86576 and 86945) all did have the cargo door indeed. Interestingly enough, even from there, the stuff was loaded using a simple beltloader.  Smile

Wow, I had no idea one of IL-96-300 existed in cargo version.
Not exactly cargo, though. Loading it was quite a task, I guess.
And now I understand the thread starter's question - how does it look inside?
It is really interesting.
Thanks a lot for enlighting me.

It is not that crazy, actually, if one knows how important for Russia importing consumer goods by the small buisness was.
Actually those were tens of thousands of individuals importing from China, Dubai and Turkey.
For their loads containers were not effective.
That's why they used whatever flies: AN-12, Il-76 - and IL-96 as we now know.
It was a decade ago.
Now - when supermarket/chain department stores "swallowed" small buisness of this kind - such aircraft are less needed.

Another question: Had the A300 just one working trust reverser in this video???

Good catch, yes, it was operating with one T/R only.

Actually the stuff what these aircraft carried was supposedly consumer goods as well, from China, Turkey, etc. They were flown into TLL, then trucked to St Petersburg or Moscow. According to an ex-colleague in the forwarding business, the benefit of carrying them through Estonia was that they were able to smack a "Imported from EU" sticker on the stuff, increasing sales value. You never know what you're really buying, eh... Don't know the specifics, though.

These days I think the goods flow through Lithuania (but I might be mistaken).
