Quoting MikeCT (Reply 1):
It's going in to Andrews Air Base, I'm not sure there would be anywhere to catch it on film there. But it's curious, this is the second arrival into Andrews in three days. Anyone know what it's doing?
Internet search engines are your friend. The head of the Russian Armed Forces, General Nikolai Makarov, is visiting his US counterpart, General Dempsey, at Pentagon. I suspect the IL-62 flights are related to that.
This means only one possibility - and yes, see you onboard! Btw the second (of four) DPRK aviation tours started this morning in PEK aboard Il-62M P-881, the least seen of Air Koryo's -62s. Let's wish them luck as they blast off from Beijing Capital on the aviation (and political, and historical) trip of a lifetime with daily flying aboard some very exotic hardware - Tu-134, Tu-154, Il-18, Il-62, Il-76, An-24, Mi-17. And in a week expect a glut of uploads to the a.net database and lots of Air Koryo safety cards on eBay!
