KLM Cargo Ilyushin Il-76

KLM Cargo Ilyushin Il-76



In 1990 the KLM was looking for a new cargo aircraft to cater to the increasing demand for air transport. They looked at their traditional aircraft supplier Boeing and also to Airbus but the aircraft offered did not fit into the price range KLM had in mind.



KLM then came into contact with the Ilyushin aircraft factory and was offered a number of Il-76 cargo aircraft. These aircraft were ordered by the Soviet air force in the late eighties but were never delivered. The aircraft offered a payload of 50.000kg and could be delivered on short notice. In all 22 aircraft were procured and they are in use till the present day.

Brilliant idea, and the KLM scheme suits the '76 rather well too.  :thumbsup:
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

That's fantastic  :bow:

The front end has a slightly Sea Master look to it in the first picture.

That's because Schiphol is lower than sea level and they bought the amphibious version in case there's a leak in the dikes........  ;D ;)

She's a beauty! Couldn't figure why it looked massively different at first, until I realised that the nose glazing was not there. Changes the appearance to almost a whole new aircraft.

Gorgeous piece of work! The changed nose threw me at first too. Bravo!
