In regards to the nose down attitude. On any aircraft, the centre of (lift) pressure moves rearward with flaps deployed, hence the nose down appearance. Nothing unusual or specifically related to high-wing design. Most of us are so used to seeing airliners with highly swept wings and the high angle of attack (nose up) needed for lift at low speeds. The wings are anhedral as opposed to dihedral. The design is a payoff between stability and manoeuvrability. BTW, great photo! The depth of field is spot on.

I thought only the MF have these engines. These here look more like the D-30KP...

A visitor from India posted Fri December 2, 2011:
Magnificent photos highlighting the conditions these monsters can work on. Il-76's are beautiful in their own right. PS-90 engines a must for being Enviro friendly. Hear these have the lowest cost of miles/passenger/gallon stats among the transports?.

Must be a rusha hour for Pskov!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun November 6, 2011:
You dont get to take a shot of an IL-76 on the ground and 3x IL-76's on approach anywhere else in the world.Just an amazing site.

A visitor from United States posted Thu July 7, 2011:
Excellent color and composition, and those Russians sure know how to build aircraft with character. Fantastic shot!

A visitor from Brazil posted Mon July 4, 2011:
Ok, you can confess .... this was all combined, so that all appear in the same picture ... ;-)) .......... 5*

A visitor from Australia posted Tue June 28, 2011:
Such a daunting angle on the IL76, and the depth of field with the incoming jets is equally daunting...

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu November 4, 2010:

EXCELLENT photo! I love this plane! Its one of the best airlifters in the world and such an awesome rugged & super-tough Russian design. Looks like a science-fiction alien dropship!! Nosedown approach is a trademark of this type of plane. Long live smoky noisy engines!! Nice to see this amongst all the boring quiet efficient new turbofans! I love the "headlights" hee hee.

A visitor from Singapore posted Fri September 17, 2010:
The 2nd IL-76 looks like an eagle, with its talons stretched down and its wings spread as it swoops down to catch some prey. :)

A visitor from United States posted Fri September 17, 2010:
Great composition, nice pastel sky, graceful smoke swirls = 5 stars! This looks like a ballet. Bravo!

Great shot! Pskov is one of the best airports in the world to take photos of Il-76s but only on operating days. But be aware of the Military Police!

A visitor from Canada posted Fri September 17, 2010:
Beautiful Il-76s, I love them! Excellent shot of the 4 smokers. My vote! Yes the nose is pointed down on high-wing aircraft, noticeable also on the Dash-8 for example, especially in landing configuration. The thing with the Il-76 is the downward angle on the wings, which I guess also affects its attitude? Waiting for someone to further discuss the topic :)

A visitor from - posted Fri September 17, 2010:
WOW! IL-76 City!! Well done there.

A very interesting picture, Igor!
I can hardly imagine the sound of all those engines. Can't have enough of those 76's :)

A visitor from Germany posted Fri September 17, 2010:
Having the nose pointing downwards means that the landing speed is slightly above the right one for that weight. the wings are producing too much lift (flaps) so the pilot have to lower the nose leading to a low angle of attack (sometimes neg).
It have a big advantage... in case of a go around/engine failure... the aircraft have already engines running at high rpm.

A visitor from Croatia posted Fri September 17, 2010:
Perfect pic of a mighty planes! No matter is it Antartica, Sahara or Siberia, the IL-76 is omnipresent.

Cool. I am just wodering why our RA AF use the civil flag instead of stars. (I am from Russia - but the system makes me expat for no reason).

A visitor from - posted Thu September 16, 2010:
The nose pointed downward it's tipically of aircrafts with the high wing like e.g. Fokker F-27 or ATR-42/72. It's simply aerodinamics...

A visitor from - posted Thu September 16, 2010:
That is a great photo, 4 Il-76 at once!

A visitor from United States posted Thu September 16, 2010:
I like it! The second Il-76 appears to have its nose pointed downward on approach. I have noticed this seems characteristic of the Il-76 as it lands. Why is this?
