During the period of the Iran-Iraq war, we were fortunate at LHR that Saddam's mighty Il-76s were frequent visitors. After being evacuated to Iran during the first Gulf War in 1991, this one was put into service by the Iranian AF in a two-tone grey camo scheme but grounded at Shiraz in the early 2000s
