Now we know!
The radome was damaged by statics firstly. Then airflow finished this dirty work.
About "all system worked well" - I forgot to add "as the crew said" :-)

EURO NCAP 5 stars for the IL-62 for frontal impact!

Hmmm.. Gremlins? Some kind of freak meteorite hit? hope they can repair it, sad to see an IL-62 go.

Aren't the pilots lucky! A few inches higher and they might have been sucked out of the cockpit by an explosive decompression! And I can't imagine the weather radar was working, the pilot probably had no idea of the extent of the damage and that's why no emergency was declared.

All systems worked well??? I doubt that radar worked fully in this state.
You must mean "all vital systems worked" :-)

...all but the radar that is.
Fantastic shot. Always great to see these unique events with so much detail.
