Sadly, I don't think it's very bright.
Being the old git that I am, I love nothing more than the throbbing tones of an Il-18, the throaty roar of a Tu-134 or Tu-154, or the crackling growl of an Il-62. Then of course, there's the shattering scream of an Il-76.
I think it's very sad that Aeroflot is replacing it's Tu-134s and Tu-154s with Airbus A32xs.
With other Russian airlines like Transaero operating 737s and 767s and VIM now operating 757s, it won't be long before the Tupolevs, Ilyushins and Antonovs are only operated by 3rd tier airlines
