    **RARE** МЧС России Ilyushin Il-62M [RA-86570] Engine Start Up, Taxi, and Takeoff

    What a rare sight!!! The last time a Ilyushin was at LAX was back in the 90s. This particular aircraft was dispatch from Russia for a medical evacuation. Check it out!

    Wow! Haven't seen an Ilyushin-62 since Aeroflot and OK (Czech) in the heyday. I thought they were grounded or in museums. Wonder if it was a direct flight from Russia?

    Wow! Had my doubts this one in particular would ever show up in the US. And here it is at LAX.

    IL-62 has been to LAX in recent years though (the regular Russian Govt transport at the time).

    Stunning. I now have a new favorite Il-62 video. Never knew the tailwheel retraction was so damn slow!

    thanks for posting
