This aircraft reminds me so much of the good, old C-141!

A visitor from United States posted Tue December 21, 2010:
If that's the runway, I think I may have figured out why the nose gear "folded up"!

It kinda reminds one of those broke-down vihicles on the Cross-Bronx Expressway!

At first glance, I thought this was a screen capture from the film "Lord of War". Then I remembered the aircraft they used was an AN-12...

Takes "parts salvage" to a whole new level.. Striped before it's nose even made touchdown

How sad :o(

Looks like a windswept area. Maybe in a Gale force wind, this will Fly. Optical illyushin indeed.. more like the "Flight of the Phoenix". Any Volunteers?.

Looks like a scene from lord of war

A plane taking off with no engines? it must be an optical Ilyushin!!! lol

Still stretching to the skies

No engines, no wheels, it must be an optical "Ilyushin"

Great shot. She looks like rotating because engines are ripped of and center of gravity sliped to the back.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat June 14, 2008:
Super! I guess when they salvaged the engines the CG moved too far back...It still has the will to fly, just not the throaty roar that will get it there :(

A visitor from Netherlands Antilles posted Wed April 16, 2008:
Always sad to see a bird in this state. I find it interesting how it looks like it's about to take off.

A visitor from United States posted Tue April 15, 2008:
Nice shot looks like it is about to take off

V1, rotate!

In the thumbnail - the aircraft looks like it is taking off..

A visitor from Turkey posted Mon April 14, 2008:
When I saw this photo on the first page as current first runner-up, I thought the Il-76 was rotating. Ironic...

A visitor from Sweden posted Mon April 14, 2008:
When I first saw the flick, I thought it was rotating, and then I saw the mud, and thought that it can not be possible.
