We expected a few Russians during the day, but this was the highlight. After a miserable day weather wise it was a pleasure to share the very crowded viewing deck with a hundred others watching this amazingly clean Russian heavy as it prepared for departure. This was the only clean shot possible. Shortly afterwards they slowly pulled her all over the ramp making long exposures impossible. 100-400 at f/8 for 5" exposure - crisp! [300D]

This photo is a great picture because it captures the true beauty of the Il-96; something that few people can do.

Very steady hands - or rather a sturdy tripod, i guess! Excellent shot and beautiful colors. Well done!

People say a lot about russian airplanes, but you gotta give it to them, the russians know how to make them. Stunning shot!
