2 IL-76 At JFK

Wed Nov 14, 2012 9:33 pm

Any ideas what they're doing there or who they're operating for? Saw them parked by hangar 4.

I was wondering the same thing....and if the C-17 parked nearby has something to do with them as well. I was a little excited this morning to see them though, it's not everyday we get to see Russian aircraft here!

The C-17 is here for Mr. Obama's planned visit tomorrow. The 2 russian planes brought in some sort of cargo that was offloaded by a bus load of people by hand into 2 tractor trailers.
