Manchester Airport Forum | Antonov - MAN
Times, Flight Number, From., Reason for visit etc.
Thanks Very Much
depending on cargo it night not be an Antonov. Could be an Illyushin 76 (even better!).
VDA have the IL76 stretch version built for them with Stage Four compliant engines which can operate inside Europe and the USA. Seen one in the flesh on its first visit to Manchester some years back and it's more interesting on a spotter's basis than an Antonov
VDA have 4 x IL76 in its fleet and one on order and they have 10 X ANT124 and another 5 of them on order at the moment.
They still use a big crew as it's a freighter with all the same sort of gear as the 124, just a bit smaller. Cranes and stuff.
Did anyone else notice that it had stopped showing on FLR24?
More on my flickr
I noticed it was invisible on flight radar24.
only showed on SBS box when on final appr.
this does happen with some older aircraft.
todays AN124 landing!
Any info would be very grateful would love to go see it.thanks. Steve.
