Taxiing out on flight SU318, en route from Washington-Dulles to Moscow. This was a fairly typical scene during the heyday of Aeroflot's use of Shannon as a refuelling stop on its transatlantic operations.

Those were the days, when Aeroflot was needed to stopover and refuel at Shannon!

Cracking shot of Shannon in the 80's with the AFL's and the IONA Bandie. Some excellent shots all round Fergal. Thanks for sticking them up.

The IL-86 is a great aircraft, but is a medium-haul airliner, was not able to fly direct from Soviet Union to the USA ! Those were the days !
