This Il-18 was delivered to CSA in June 1967 and flew with the airline until retirement in November 1984 and had amassed a total time of 23,578 hours and 20,829 cycles. It is now preserved as a small cafe in a lay-by near Bakov nad Jizerou wearing this 'Air Kofola' scheme. Kofola is a Czech cola/root-beer soft drink available everywhere in the country, so presumable the company paid for the repaint as a form of free advertising to all the cars passing by.
This Il-18 flew with the original flag-carrier of the DDR from April 1960 and subsequently with Interflug from September 1963. It was then given the new-prefix DDR- reg. in July 1981 until cancellation in September 1988. The frame is now preserved close to the a passenger terminal at LEJ with a grey underbelly finish, rather than the original natural metal (necessary for long-term outdoor protection).
This is Ilyushin 18 #1, the first Production aircraft from the line. Originally delivered in 1957 as "001" Red. Was used for different engine type testing, and became an instructional airframe by 1960. 50 years later she still is looking sharp. Painted in a classic version of the Aeroflot scheme.
Acquired by Hotelsuites.nl for conversion into a luxury hotel suite for two at Teuge airport, where it arrived (by truck) on 24 April 2009. It is seen here shortly after its arrival and still in its original Interflug colours. The name "Fani" was only carried on the left side. Less than three months later the aircraft had already been fully repainted in grey and white Hotelsuites.nl colours. The Ilyushin was still there by July 2018.
