By the same token as IL-62 5A-DNY is an odd aircraft to use as a freighter, this is an odd one to use for passengers. Ready to go with a full load of Libyans bound for the central oasis town of Sebha, the debris visible is the result of them sitting on the tarmac around the aircraft for hours before departure - no sense of FOD here!

Not entirely unusual to be used for passengers. Between 1989-1992 the Ilyushin Il-76TD aircraft were used for regular passenger flights between Tashkent in the USSR and Kabul in Afghanistan. They were chosen because the Il-76TD were fitted with the flare-launching equipment to distract heat-seeking Stingers, which was absolutely essential in those days
