Routing from MOW to CCS

Mon Sep 30, 2019 1:04 pm

Apparently 2 Russian Government Aircraft flew from Russia (presumably VKO) to CCS. Does anybody know which Aircraft they were and what route they took?

The caption shows an AN-148 but I find it hard to believe they used this Aircraft for the Mission given the lack of range.

VKO-CCS is only 5357 nm (9921 km). SU has several airplanes with that kind of range, including the B-77W, A-333, and A-332.

Thanks for the link Armadillo. Don't have Flight Radar but IL-62 makes more sense than AN-148! I believe most of the Russian Government fleet is based in VKO but where did this one come from?
