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

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?.

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

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 :(

Always sad to see a bird in this state. I find it interesting how it looks like it's about to take off.

When I saw this photo on the first page as current first runner-up, I thought the Il-76 was rotating. Ironic...

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.
