Viktor Bout Trial Begins

Thu Oct 13, 2011 4:08 am

Probably better known on a.net as behind Air Cess and other unreputable companies flying barely airworthy Russian metal with African flags of convenience.

I guess the aircraft in questions are IL76's?

Oh great. The US Government is putting the guy who was doing their dirty work on trial.

IL-18s I believe, but maybe some 76s too. I have flown on 2 of the IL-18s with possible previous links to him, one of them just last week

it was a whole group of companies around Air Cess. I had him and his brother on the phone a few times, and they readily provided the information I needed.

IL-76, IL-18 and An-12 were in use there
