A rare sight even in '06, RA-86124 rumbles noisily into RWY 05 on a dull and dreary day following the end of a charter flight from Russia. The USSR's first widebody, the Il-86 had never really made a lasting impact, even though it was essentially a good and safe design. It's perpetual Achille's Heel - which had held it back its entire service life - were the inefficient Kuznetsov NK-86 engines, a warmed-over version of the 60's NK-8, used - among others - early models of the (much lighter) Tu-154.

After ~30,000 saved photos on my HDD that took ~8.7 GBs of space I'm going to try smth other. For example to keep them here. Easier & faster.
