New Ilyushin Il96 to fly in 2019


They are expecting to produce 6-8 to make sure they’re still competitive in the long haul area. It will most likely stop production when the new twin engined long haul aircraft enters service.

It will be powered by 4 PS-90A1.

Cool, but it looks inefficient.

Still looks like a cheap knock-off of the a340.

Don’t know, i=it says they might get a completely another engine.

I’d think it would be a better idea to use 2 large engines. Less maintenance and cheaper overall.

It seems offending IMO. Please add “I didn’t mean to offend anyone” in these types of jokes. ;-)

Actually, the A340 was introduced one year later than the IL-96…
