What Is The Il-96-400T?

Thu Jun 29, 2006 2:31 am

According to www.flightglobal.com the first stretched Il-96-400T will be assembled.

I have never heard of a stretched Il-96.

Any information from A.net users about it? Could be a very interesting freighter airplane for some airlines due to absolutely low acquiring costs.

I made two detailed posts about it in the last month. It is the IL-96M (which itself is a 6m stretch of the -300) but with PS-90A2 engines. You are right, it is attractive for cargo airlines.

Isn't it the IL-96T with PS-90 engines ? The IL-96M with PS90A2 would be the IL-96-400 ?

The first aircraft, according to the article, is for Atlant-Soyuz.

But Silk Way Airlines is interested in it, an airline which rather tends, as far as I can judge, to western jets ? That would be great !

Or is this a confusion with Silk Way from Azerbaijan ?
Exceptions confirm the rule.

Sorry, my reply was a little to short. The Il-96-400T is just a cargo version of the IL-96-400, which has PS-90A2 engines.

My glass is neither 1/2 empty nor 1/2 full, rather, the glass itself is twice as big as it should be.

@ 777DadandJr

Thanks for that link! I understood the airplane in the article in flightglobal has ANOTHER stretch.

So, it is the old fuselage length.I am sad to hear that, because it would have been great to see another airliner in the A346/773-class...

Thanks for the photo, pal. I do believe that I have seen a few photos in an airplane book I've had since I was about 11 or 12. Pretty large bird. According to that book, it was only flown in eastern block countries in Europe. Was that before the Soviet Union fell? Arent' some of those birds making flights across the Atlantic?

Not entirely correct. The site with the photo clearly shows a P&W engine. The aircraft is pretty long actually - 64m.
