Apparently my previous post "A Cubana IL-62 just flew over my house" wasn't apporopriate enough for some reason so it was deleted.
Anyway, I was wondering if they list their IL-62's in their schedule for flights to YYZ. I always thought they fly A320's or B737's. Is there any way to know when they will come to YYZ with an Il-62? How often a month do they come here? I would really like to go to the airport to "catch" one, but I don't know when they come to Toronto.
I saw one today, by chance, it flew over my house about 20 minutes ago. The very distinct and comperativley loud noise of the engines made me run outisde and take a look, it was flying quite low. I love this plane!

I just got back from Cuba last week. I flew there IL-62 from Cancun, Mexico. I love this plane!
It was a very smooth riding aircraft.
Cubana's schedual is not very consistant. The HAV-YYZ flight is supposed to be an A320. Sometimes they do send up the IL-62.
My return flight to Cancun was supposed to be a YAK-42 but they used the IL-62 on the return also.
They are based right there in Toronto.
I booked my trip to Cuba through them. They are great!
