With all these beautiful lines, nobody says we are in front of a Russian plane!

Nice lines but obviously strange aerodynamic bahaviour. Just look at the engines so close together and imagine one of them failing shortly after V1, it must be a bitch to handle than

Really is a great shot, like you say, it is nice for a russian aircraft, just glancing at the smal picture, i thought it was an A340!

I stil don't get what is the relation between Russian Aircrafts, Lisbon and photos on a.net ...but they seem to get along very well ;-)
Well done André.
Congrats for the big hit

I thought when the engines are closer to the fuselage the aircraft is easier to handle in case of an engine failure.

Airbutski A340?? You forgot that the Il-96 first flew in 1988, 3 years before the A340.
The winglets are not beautiful? why??
Some people have strange knowledge of aerodynamics
