IL-62 First UK Visit

So I have heard... the first visit for this frame to the UK. A special thread for this.

Re: IL-62 First UK Visit

Very nice! Such an interesting machine. I believe this one is the only freighter one.

The IL-62 is really beautiful, I like to finally see a big jet with T tail.
I've always wondered why no widebody jets were made with T tail, rear mounted engines and "clean" wings.

Re: IL-62 First UK Visit

Lovely Adam. I had seen it was due but didn't make the journey for it with work. Brilliant pictures of a rare machine. I remember being a kid and my dad taking me to Manchester when these came in. Always remind me of the VC10. Although the the VC10 was a better aircraft. Great shots mate.

Re: IL-62 First UK Visit

Fascinating, I had no idea there were any IL-62 freighters! Even better to see it at DSA.

Re: IL-62 First UK Visit

Huge thanks for the comments. This is the only freighter version I think.

Re: IL-62 First UK Visit

Great catch! Indeed, a IL-62 is very rare. AFAIK, beside passenger option, the T-tail also have the Combi version, operated by Deta Air (Kazakhstan) and all cargo (the aircraft above). The whining sound of the D-30 is aweeesome!

Re: IL-62 First UK Visit

It does look rather a 'cut-and-shut' job. I'm sure it's perfectly sturdy though otherwise it wouldn't be allowed into the airspace! Any idea who carried out the conversion? Not one of those African 'DIY' cargo jobs I assume...

Re: IL-62 First UK Visit

I believe there are actually three all-cargo Il-62's, but it might just be two.
