Volga-Dnepr's Il-76

A Volga-Dnepr Airlines Il-76TD-90VD arrived today as VDA4926 from San Deigo. The flight originated from KEF (Keflavik International Airport, Iceland). RA-76592 (c/n 2093422743, l/n 94-06) is currently en route to PPT (Faa'a International Airport, Papaete, Tahiti) at the time of this posting. In its cargo hold is from what I saw was at least one jet turbine.

RA-76592 also wears the 20th Anniversary logo on the tail. The Volga-Dnepr Il-76TD-90VDs are powered by Aviadvigatel PS90 engines, which have been Stage III approved globally, and this variant was specifically designed for VDA.

I saw this plane today as well!! I was on my way to fly from the GA side of HNL and I saw this bird as it was turing off the runway. Good catch with the camera...I was hoping someone caught it today.
