Stored IL-96 Destroyed By Fire At SVO

Tue Jun 03, 2014 11:44 am

Sad news, guys  

IIlyushin IL-96 registered RA-96010 suffered an onboard fire while parked at SVO today at 10.25 UTC. Plane was retired from service with Aeroflot in March 2014. It was stored in SVO for two months, now it’s almost completely destroyed by fire. Fortunately, there were no casualities. The fire will be under investigation, and the cause may be determined later.

The plane was empty and there are no injuries, but it's not looking good for the aircraft.

So, IL-96 will join the 340 in the quite short list of airliners that have both suffered hull losses, but with no occurrence of passenger/crew deaths.

How, in fact, does a stored aircraft go up in flames is really a good question? Assuming all electrical components are turned off and just sitting there for about 2 months (if it was retired in March as indicated). I also smell something foul.
As of Dec 2018 I've flown 417,862 miles on 250 flights on 51 airplane types with 55 airlines traveling thru 97 airports in 43 countries. I've visited 59 countries. 2019 is looking like a pretty decent year for me.

"Not looking good?" I think it is safe to say that, given its circumstances, even a small fire would have resulted in a writeoff for this bird. This was a major fire that would have written off any aircraft. Very sad but it happens - at least nobody was hurt or killed. We can take solace in that.

Strange indeed. But note the opened cowl of the 2nd engine and step-ladder near it. Perphaps, the fire started during some maintenance procedures.

Good catch. Though, at least from the photos, it appears that the fire originated somewhere in the forward cabin or perhaps the cockpit. It doesn't look to me like the fire was started on/in the engine.

I'd like to say there's something ironic about this accident.

The damaged aircraft was named in a honour of Nikolai Karpeev. He worked as a pilot and flight instructor at Aeroflot during 1990s. The economical crisis greatly affected Aeroflot, and the IL-96 suffered from subsequent service-entry problems. But Mr Karpeev was extremely enthusiastic about this plane. He and a his colleagues had performed the enormous amount of work during the process of entry into service. They were real "IL-96-geeks". Without their efforts, maybe Aeroflot would newer operate Ilyushin IL-96. Pilots who worked with Nikolai Karpeev say that he was a dedicated flight instructor and great teacher.

Sadly, Nikolai Karpeev died in 2000. He was only 54. His colleagues suggested to name one of the Aeroflot's IL-96s in honour of Mr. Karpeev. This idea was widely supported by pilots, and RA-96010 was named in honour of him.

Aeroflot retired all IIlyushin IL-96s in March, and shorly after the aircraft RA-96010 "Nikolai Karpeev" burst into flames. Both the beginning and the ending for IL-96 operation at Aeroflot are associated with one name.

The quote from na is the motto of the chivalric order of the Knights of the Garter. The British Monarch is the head of the order and confers it as a personal gift. It s the oldest and most prestigious order in the UK and was founded somewhere between 1344-1348. A knight of the garter has the right to have the garter surrounding his or her coat of arms. It appears on the coat of arms of Elizabeth II if you want to see what that looks like.

The motto translates from medieval French to roughly - 'Evil Be to He Who Evils Thinks'.

It comes from the (possibly apocryphal) story that surrounds the founding of the order. Supposedly the English King Edward III uttered the phrase when the Countess of Salisbury's garter fell off when she was dancing. The garter was used to hold up stockings and it falling off is akin to her knickers/underwear falling down as at that time ladies didn't wear knickers. The inference of dropping a garter in front of a man and him picking it up was that the lady was inviting the man to visit her chamber that night. Edward III was famously chaste and devoted to his wife. Hence the utterance.

I always thought, the russians do sth. like this properly and burn down all IL-96's simultaniously?! They should have just had them parked together more closely  

joke aside, isn't this a coincidence? They put them out of service, they find no buyer, but just, when they can still claim, they're part of out fleet, one bursts into flames?! Are those planes insured for the full new price?

No. So really. This theory about insurance fraud. How much can they get for what is essentially scrap metal? I really think it´s just a weird theory that SU would go to all the trouble of burning the aircraft for what is a minimal insurance payout.

What they are gonna have to pay to SVO for all the trouble, is probably a lot more than the money their insurance would have gotten them for that IL-96

If it has the canister-type O2 for passengers it is relatively easy. That is how the ATA DC-10 burned in 1986. Jarring it loose or just a good hard bang can cause it to ignite at over 600 degrees F.

Those canisters also brought down ValuJet over the Everglades. An airplane that is sitting retired should have had them all removed and capped.

You will see that all cabin doors are open as well as the #2 cowl. There are also ladders leading to the #2 engine, the left main, as well as the rear cargo door (which is also open from other photos). Service was being done to this aircraft, possibly to fly it to another location for storage? Either way, I don't think it will be too difficult to figure out what happened.

The first thing that came to my mind when I saw the picture was this is very likely an oxygen fire. It doesn't have to have canister O2 generators to have an oxygen fire that destroys the airplane. The Egypt Air 777 that was a hull loss was a fire in the copilot's O2 system which is fed by a bottle. In 1990 Delta lost a 727 in SLC do to an O2 leak. Because of the need for a pressure O2 system for the flight crew, I am not aware of any airliner that does not have a bottle O2 system for the cockpit. With a bottle system you have a highly pressurized system that can feed a fire for a relatively long time. A leak in the cockpit system is much more destructive than a canister fire which in it self is capable to destroy a plane as you pointed out.

None of the 9 people on board were killed, which is the point flyingturtle was making (that the IL-96 and A340 are among the only aircraft to have hull losses with no associated deaths).

It may be a short list but there's more than These 2 and the ATA DC10 which was mentioned.

LTU lost a 1011 by Hangar fire at DUS, MS had a 777 damaged by Cockpit fire. i am sure that others will come up with more.

That A340 was an AF aircraft at CDG in Addition to the 346 shown in the Picture where someone forgot to step on the Brakes.

Spent a lovely 3 1/2 hrs on this old girl, SVO-LCA last October with an old friend.

Quoting F9Animal (Reply 26):

I still think the 96 is a beauty!!!! Very sad ending to this pretty lady. It looks so sharp in that livery too!

   Poor plane. I'd have really loved to fly on one.

Quoting AR385 (Reply 31):
No. So really. This theory about insurance fraud. How much can they get for what is essentially scrap metal? I really think it´s just a weird theory that SU would go to all the trouble of burning the aircraft for what is a minimal insurance payout.

I was thinking exactly the same. A 20 year old aircraft of an uncommon type isn't going to be worth a lot. Given that the aircraft isn't in service, is it even required to have insurance at all?

Quoting sandyb123 (Reply 39):
Not sure how you're categorising this, but don't forget the A346 that ran through the blast wall during engine testing at TUL (IIRC).

Noone died in that accident, thankfully. And the back part of the plane actually lives on, in the form of Emirates' A6-ERG.
First to fly the 787-9

It may be a short list but there's more than These 2 and the ATA DC10 which was mentioned.

LTU lost a 1011 by Hangar fire at DUS, MS had a 777 damaged by Cockpit fire. i am sure that others will come up with more.

Aircraft types, not singular aircraft. Otherwise we had to include a 330 into the list (the MH aircraft that was destroyed beyond repair by leakage of a chemical). By counting aircraft types, it's a bigger "feat" to get & remain on this list.

Deadly accidents with 1011? Eastern Airlines 401 in the Everglades.
MH370 with all passengers presumed dead.
DC-10? The Ermenonville disaster near Paris comes to mind.

AA191 in Chicago
I think is still the largest death toll for a crash in the US (A true crash. I believe American 11 and United 175 killed more people)

Feb. 24th, 1999. A MD88, LV-VBY, msn 53048, was completely burnt at AEP in the AR hangar. It comed to be an electrical failure on the aircraft. No one was hurt. Similar case, but weird.
A pity, as I love the IL9!

Curiously enough the first A340 hull loss was also due to a fire while the aircraft was undergoing maintenance:
http://aviation-safety.net/database/record.php?id=19940120-0

in that case the probable cause was "Overheat and fire of the yellow hydraulic electric pump operating the aircraft cargo doors on ground with the engines off"...

the overall effects of the fire were also similar (look at the pics @ ASN, damage and burn through to the upper fuselage and the crown throughout the whole length of the hull, though in the A340's case more severe to the point that the fuselage was broken)
Too short space for my favorite hopelessly long winded one liner
