I was looking at a few photos of Aeroflot and noticed that there Airbus and Boeing aircraft are VP-??? but there others are RA-?????.What is with the different reg.

The "Western" aircraft are registered in Bermuda as a result if the financing used to purchase or lease the aircraft. EXIM Bank I think...not positive.
|Quoting LTU932 (Reply 2):|
Only in part probably. Most of all, the reason why most Western aircraft operating for Russian airlines are registered in Bermuda is because of Russian import taxes. If these import taxes weren't as high as they are today, I'm sure more Western aircraft would be present in the Russian register.

So does that mean that these aircraft are registered in Bermuda with an Aeroflot-owned Bermudan airline and just wetleased to Aeroflot? Or how does this registered in Bermuda thing work?
