A visitor from United States posted Fri January 4, 2013:
The angle, focal length (along with the distance from the plane) and the lighting really come together to make this picture what it is: impressive. The very pleasing lines of the Il-96 don't hurt either, along with the previously mentioned shutter speed effect on the engines. Perfect! Until someone else here had mentioned it, I never once realized the hammer & sickle are still indeed part of Aeroflot's logo. After all these many years, I'm shocked I hadn't detected this myself before. But given Russian behaviors since the fall of the USSR, though, I am somehow not the least bit surprised, unfortunately. 5 well-deserved Stars on the photo, for many good reasons.

About rectangle behind the flag.
It's just small change in painting scheme. Here on A.net exist old (2006 yr) photo of this RA-96015, where russian flag has no rectangle.
This rectangle exist also on other a/c, for example Yak-40 photo No.1121642

A lovely shot of a lovely plane! I wish I could see it at an airport...

A visitor from - posted Fri July 25, 2008:
Notice the light gray/white rectangle behind the russian flag? On old Aeroflot aircraft they had that im assuming because they blanked out the old USSR flag and just stuck on a russian flag. But this is a brand new plane with a brand new paint job... what is with the light rectangle coverd by the offset russian flag?

A visitor from Netherlands posted Fri May 9, 2008:
I love the engines! i love russia too!

A visitor from United States posted Tue February 5, 2008:
What a beautiful plane the IL-96 is. That with the Aeroflot conour scheme make this photo so great!!

A visitor from United States posted Tue February 5, 2008:
That is one gorgous plane. Nice shot

A visitor from Luxembourg posted Tue February 5, 2008:
Perfect exposure, lovely crop, just thr right shutter speed to enhance the compressor blades.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun February 3, 2008:
I love every detail in this photo.The look of concentration on the pilots faces.,the livery of this bird blends rather well with the cold backdrop.

A visitor from China posted Sat February 2, 2008:
A very clean shot of this metallic plane! Well done!!

A visitor from United States posted Fri February 1, 2008:
If there is a more gorgeous plane than the IL-96, I haven't found it. Good work!

A visitor from Poland posted Fri February 1, 2008:
Perfect photo!

A visitor from Greece posted Fri February 1, 2008:
More Il96s pleeease!

A visitor from Mexico posted Fri February 1, 2008:
Those colors match the ancient "United Airlines" color scheme. Nice shot. T.B.
