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.

I agree, GREAT SHOTS Senga and Eric ! I have a favor for Senga, I only have access to the FlyteComm.com flight tracker and although Tuesdays IL-62's where on their a lot of Senga's traffic is not. Senga during this special U.N. session could you just keep and eye on LGA as sometimes we get lucky and one of the smaller foreign government aircraft do come to LGA and there are a few of us that would enjoy catching whatever might come here.

Thanks

Great shots guys! I love seeing those guys.

Wondering if anyone caught video? In other words, got the sounds in action too?


Beautiful aircraft, arent they?

Hi Mirrodie,
Sorry no sound. Ad always those IL-62s are awsome to listen to. The wine of the IL-62 is almost as awsome as the IL-76! It sounds eirie like the Concorde did becase the engines are so close together.

I know this photo has nothing to do with NYC area airports but it is a very cool IL-62 shot uploaded today and after all how often do we get to see a photo of a North Korean Airliner. Have a look, very, very cool photo !

Maybe one could be the Ukraine gov't? Maybe the other one is the Gambia new Millennium? :) That's one I'd love to get.
