A few years ago (Feb 2013) I had the incredible privilege of walking on top of a Russian Airforce IL-76 at Yelahanka AFS, Bangalore after getting down I thought, 'what can possibly top this?' Well, I guess witnessing a South Indian dawn from the top of this colossus has to be it! - for now ;-)

Two are. This airframe flew it's last flight on March 29, I'm sure the Navy will keep it alive to see if it can go to another base to be a gate guardian.

IN312 flew to Visakhapatnam to be a museum exhibit​ on April 8.
