Guyana Airways IL62M CCCP86492 Question

Fri Nov 30, 2018 12:40 pm

Hey guys,

While searching about Guyana Airways on Google, I came to realized they were the only South American airline that flew the Tupolev 154 (leased from Tarom), with Cubana.

More interesting, it seems they used an IL62 from Aeroflot, registered CCCP-86492 on a single occasion for a UN conference. The plane appear in full Guyana Airways colors though. Anyone knows more about that aircraft? Was it really used just this once? Painting an aircraft for one trip, really?

I think SAA painted an SP for Air Malawi for a similar state visit. Ah the good old days...

Absolutely..... aircraft flew to LHR, parked up for a couple of weeks , then back to Malawi.
They even reregistered it ... 7Q-YKL ...? Or something or other.

I've seen it, but I didn't know or was just for a one shot thing.

It's a rare thing, for sure. There is a pic of the Air Malawi jet somewhere here on A*net. The plane was a Boeing 747SP, by the way.

I don't know it was a one time thing, but I never saw it and I travelled with them regularly during that time. At the time GAC used 707s and noise abatement laws ended use of that a/c. I know they leased a TU-154 from Tarom, as they had a TU-154M on order new. The received the 154M but it was damaged in a hard landing and ended up at Cubana and then elsewhere.

Here is pic of IL-62:

Definitley only used for Guyana government business to attend one conference. Yes, the good old days indeed. From what I read, the aircraft was never used for commercial purposes. I don’t have the photo saved however if you look at the front of the fuselage, next to the ‘Guyana Airways’ titles, there is the Guyanese presidential seal or Casique Crown.

Didn't Aeronica also operate the Tu-154 at one point? I seem to remember a pic of one at MEX.

Slightly unrelated, but here's a TU-104 in Alitalia colors:



It never belonged to Alitalia, but it was painted in this livery for a movie. Still it's weird to see a western airline livery on a Russian jet.

And why they had to paint a CSA Tu-104A in a weird version of the Alitalia livery and not use an actual western aircraft or even the real thing as in a DC9-30 is beyond me as it looks ridiculous.

A Tupolev TU-104A of CSA Cescoslovenske Aerolinie was painted in fake Alitalia colours on one side (port side) in November 1975 for a film, it also had a fake registration applied I-DIWN, it was in fact OK-NDF.

A Sud Aviation SE 210 Caravelle was painted in Soviet Aeroflot livery, also for a movie. And, many of us older A*Netters will remember that a Concorde was painted in Singapore Airlines livery on its port side. Speaking of Aeroflot, they painted Japan Airlines titles on one of their Tupolev Tu-114s, and KLM titles on one of their Ilyushin Il-62s, both to promote joint ventures.

Pics of all of these aircraft are posted elsewhere here on A*Net.
