Volga-Dnepr Airlines' RA-82077

Another Volga-Dnepr Airlines An-124-100M, RA-82077 (c/n 9773054459151, l/n 07-09), has made a stop at HNL from KHV [Khabarovsk Novy, Khabarovsk, Russia], as VDA3015.

RA-82077 was originally delivered to Polet Flight in August 1995. The airline ceased operations in April 2015. Volga-Dnepr Airlines acquired this An-124 last month.

Seen three AN 124s over a two-week period at PHNL/HNL in March 2017. No good pics, sorry, the contractor airport police nazi from Securitas wouldn't let me get any from the fence-line; probably not an enforceable ban but I didn't want to pick a fight so...no pic.
Thanks for getting pics of these Russian giants and describing their load/mission. I was wondering what they might be doing in Hawaii, and at the civilian, not Hickam AFB, side of the airfield.

If you ask the security guards, they might let you. I've done that previously, by the North Ramp security entrance. They did allowed me to get shots of the 1st JetStar 787 ...
