At about 6:20 this evening I am pretty sure I saw a Cubana IL-62 fly southwards over my house from YYZ. Do they usually use IL-62's to Toronto? I thought they used A320's or B737's. I am pretty sure it was Cubana, the plane looked like a Il-62, it was too big to be an MD-8x or a B727. I tohught I also made out "Cubana" on the fusulage.... A great site anyway...


I wish there were more IL-62s at YYZ.

Excellent! My spotting skills aren't as bad as I thought.  Smile It was flying quite low when it flew over, a site behold. Then it started climbing a bit more quickly...

I wish I could see them more often. I love the IL-62 and Russian ACs in genreall. Also, I noticed that the IL-62 has a very distinct sound....

i grew up in gander (yqx) in the 80,s.that place look just like moscow at times.i have seen 9 il62 a/c at yqx parked the same time.back in the 80,s aeroflot,cubana,lot,tarom,csa,interflug,balkan were all regular airlines daily with il62 il86 tu154.those days are long long gone.actually my first dispatcher job was in yqx dispatching aeroflot and cubana which used to tech stop there.i have to say the il62 is a real beauty

Jetset:

I'm not aware of Balkan having ANY 62's. Are you sure? Also, AFAIK, there was not a single 62 or 62M registered in Bulgaria ever.

my telx read il62 il86 tu154.i just grouped everyone together.balkan operated 3 days week tu154 from sof-snn-yqx-hav and back.aeroflot and cubana ran approx 50 flights per week.lot csa and tarom approx 6 each per week.i also forgot to metion cubana and aeroflot also put their il76 a/c thur as well.yqx in the 80,s and early 90,s was a great spot for spotting aircraft

I'm glad the IL62 just passed over your house instead of landing on it!

It is a sight soon to disappear unless you leave in Russia or neighbouring republics, which is a real real pity.
