No Reg (cn 175011706) I just haven't got words! There is nothing similar to compare with this Ilyushin. Really rare one. [5D mk II + EF 600 + 1.4]

Magnificent aircraft in a perfect shape! One of four or five variants of the Il-20M.

stop this "copy" crap

A visitor from Australia posted Wed February 15, 2012:
Well if the ice doesn't get them mechanical failure will. Look at the state of those engine cowls! As for the 'copy cat' reference, as has been said before on A.net, similar performance / task requirements results in similar design outcomes.

A visitor from United States posted Wed February 15, 2012:
Good point about the icing. As to what it is a "copy" of, it looks like maybe a P-3 Orion. Just a guess though.

A visitor from United States posted Wed February 15, 2012:
To post below, I fairly certain the Il20 is a copy of the U.S. p3 orion. Stumming capture either way you look at it

Whoa! Full of "blackjack and hookers"!

A visitor from Ireland posted Wed February 15, 2012:
Super shot of a rare aircraft. the snow on the roof adds to the authenticity

A visitor from - posted Mon February 13, 2012:
Technically, that particular part of the airplane is not considered a critical surface and, therefore, is not required to be de-iced. However, good airmanship still dictates that a snow cap like this is to be removed before take-off. It certainly increases skin friction, adds some UNKNOWN amount of weight and decreases fuselage lift. It's not a big safety compromise though.

A visitor from Italy posted Mon February 13, 2012:
That's a stunning bird. I just wondered what's the "original" this bird is supposed to be a copycat of. About ice, the important thing is to have clean airfoils, and actually you can notice that the wings are very clean. Why is it so necessary to clean a fuselage already completely spoiled by big ECM antennas and pods? That's almost a waste of time. Technical staff at Chkalovski is everything but "ignorant", so please have some respect for these skilled workers.

A visitor from United States posted Mon February 13, 2012:
Isn't that an IL-18 - use to be? Super anyway you look at it!

A visitor from Netherlands posted Mon February 13, 2012:
No de-icing for these old Russian birds???

A visitor from Germany posted Mon February 13, 2012:
Amazing shot's Artyom! Congratulations! Rambler..

A visitor from Germany posted Mon February 13, 2012:
Herky nose and a load of ice and snow on top, another copy and paste result from behind the iron curtain, and operated with a maximum of ignorance.

A visitor from United States posted Sun February 12, 2012:
Great picture of a rare plane. Why is there still a significant amount of ice on top of the fuselage?

A visitor from - posted Sun February 12, 2012:
Astonishing he can fly with all that snow on top - apparently the crew just didn't care to deice!
