Default Aeroflot Il-76TD CCCP-76795 by AviaBoss

A PM from a fellow forum member reminded me I should have posted some more photos of this model. In fact this is my second one, as the first example met with a tragic accident involving my driveway. So here she is once more, and still a wonderful model. Normally I like to make little dioramas but this model is too big for me to handle.

I purchased mine directly from the owners through AviaBoss - Collectible Scale Airplane Models. but you will also find them for sale on Ebay by searching on: "Il-76" "1:200".

Thanks for the link - I also ordered directly. There was one on ebay, but unfortunately it was a bidding job, I had put the sole bid on it but some idiot wants it so badly they put a dumb price on over my max bid, which was the price of the model direct from the makers, so I went down that road instead

Good to hear it worked out. Alex from AviaBoss is a nice person to deal with.

Is that a gap on the front wing root? Beautiful model. I have a resin version with gears but I like this AviaBoss better. I hope to be able to acquire one. Thanks

they are there on purpose but I am not sure why the Il-76 has these openings. I assume they perform a similar function as on the DC-8, perhaps driving turbo compressors ?

This would have been nice to have in the colors as flown by the UN in Former Yugoslavia. I once had the pleasure of flying with it on a Zagreb-Sarajevo mission. A couple of AN'26s were also used on that segment.

I am a collector of anything UN Aviation related Fred, so I definitely support your wish. That must have been quite an experience flying on this beast!

Cool collection! In Yugoslavia was also the MI-26 helicopter. Once, when doing hovering tests with a 20-feet container beside the tower on Zagreb airport its rotor blades hit the tower corner. When I left there the damaged blades were still lying along the ground wall of the tower. And the marks in the wall's concrete!

Lying in the nose of the "76" on a "Sarajevo Approach" was quite an experience. They usually had to land downwind, quite steeply, due to the firing positions of the Serbian snipers.

Xmas '94 it happened! A "76" over-shot the end due to the slippery r/w and ended up in the perimeter minefield, its main tires blown. Problem was this exact flight carried the Xmas "essentials" of the French Legionaires holding the airfield - wine, turkey, presents, tons of it.

They weren't to lose it to the Serbians surrounding the perimeter so they rushed after it in their funny little jeeps, into the minefield. It was OK as long as they followed the plane tracks but they set off a couple of personell mines when they reached the plane. Nobody got hurt, though. And they saved their Xmas goodies.

But, the IL-76 was never salvaged, I believe. It took several flights by the AN-26 to fly out the on-board electronics. Tons of vacuum-tube stuff!

Fred

----------------------

P.S.: Just for the fun of it I just googled the incident. This particular IL-76 may have been specially chartered by the French for the flight but all three flew in UN markings. After the crash we only had two left as long as I remained there. They were flown by Ukrainians. We also occasionally had a couple of TU-154's. Mainly used for force rotations and the service between Zagreb and Split. So, it was eventually salvaged.... But obviously without its electronics.:

UPDATE: this thread inspired me last February to order the IL-76.

It finally arrived today after nearly 2 months and it was well worth the wait. I highly recommend it. great detail and rolling tires too.

One word of caution, it does take a long time to receive it so show patience, sit back and eventually it will show up....
