Those colors match the ancient "United Airlines" color scheme. Nice shot. T.B.

If there is a more gorgeous plane than the IL-96, I haven't found it. Good work!

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.

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?

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

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.
