Was It An Il-96?

Mon Feb 18, 2002 4:58 pm

On Saturday, I was spotting in BCN, and when I left (after seeing taking off of our usual Aeroflot il-86), I saw a tail (I could see only the tail) with the russian flag, and I thought, maybe an il-96? I was waiting some time for a movement but...nothing.

Is the il-96 the only libery with the russian flag on its tail?

Also Aeroflot`s A 310 and B 767-300 are wearing the Russian flag on the tail. Other Aeroflot airliners with the Russian flag are Tu-134, Tu-154, Il-62M,Il-76. Most of Aeroflot`s Il-86 have a grey tail with the Russian flag on it. All six Il-96 have a white tail as a difference between both airliners.
