    The usual "State Tranport Company of Russia". Sheesh how about those Snazzy TU-154s they have or the TU-204.
    Was hoping for something different but oh well

    It was nice to finally get the IL-62 from that angle! I have plenty of "State Transport COmpany of Russia" IL-62s but these shots are just the best Ih ave gotten so far.

    It was nice to see those IL's landing on 13L. I love the noise they make, as they fly over.

    good work guys... the wx definately cooperated.
    it is mathematically impossible for either hummingbirds, or helicopters to fly. fortunately, neither are aware of this.
