At a guess I'd say either an Il76 or an An12??? It's def 4 engines tho!!

If I had to pick one I'd go for the IL76!
The Legendary Terry Pratchett once said:
At the beggining there was nothing....

Which exploded....

I understand the need for it but how do they not bash their heads on that security camera?
You always show us aspects of life that few would ever have the remotest chance of seeing. Thank you.

I'm not a pilot So I don't know
That's how it turns out But I also have a rough list of work processes that I would still like to capture...

I've taken numerous cockpit shots over the years but never had a result that I was really happy with; The extremes of light nearly always beat me! This shot is just perfect!
