If it would not be rainy it would be 'tasty' day at LED - some nice birds like Il-62 and Il-76 had arrived.

With that traffic i'd assume that this airport has at least few jetways? Well, i might not see them. Nice rainy shot.

Wow look at that! 6 types of planes in one pic. the TU-154, IL-76, A-320 or whatever, IL-62, B737, and the TU-134. Very nice capture you have here.

Pulkovo (Pulkovo-1, at least) does not have jetways, such that they first collect you in the bus and then drive you 50 meters to the aircraft. The airport itself is still a soviet-style abomination, even in 2008. To their credit, its renovation is apparently in progress.

This place must be the heaven for me, a Russian-beauty addict: 3 designs of Tupolev + 3 designs of Ilyushin are alltogether; besides, the Il-62 masterpiece is included!! LED (or any big RU city) will be visited, that's clear :)

I flew from LED to SVO that morning (12 May, 2008) and got a good look at the IL-62. We were parked right beside it. It had engine intake covers installed. That morning (0900), the weather was good. Didn't have my camera, it was in my luggage. My first ride that morning in a Tu-154M. The runway was indeed very rough!

If it would not be rainy - it would not be St. Petersburg :) Beautiful 'moody' shot with these classic weather conditions.
