The photo cuts part of the aircraft but at the same time, it show You its spirit and the view in its cleanest + partially closed undercarriage. I flew in the cockpit of this jet as a child ;-) It was amazing.

Since I can read Russian I would like to do a translation of what it says on the body of the airplane: ‘The Governor Valentin Tsvetkov. He was the governor of Magadan city in the Far East of Russia before he was assassinated in 2002. I believe it was dedicated to his memory. As for the plane, I have flown many times on Il-62 as a passenger, including my Aeroflot flights to Seattle from Vladivostok with one scheduled stop in Anchorage in early 90s. I believe it is the safest Russian built plane. It has a history of only 12 total loss incidents, since it first flew in 1963, two of which were with no casualties. It’s a petty not so many of them are still in service these days…
