Photographer's Remark

Dark rain clouds approaching from the northwest, but "Lugano" is still lit by the nice autumn sunshine. On May 24, 1991 the crew of this aircraft was unable to find the runway of Bakhtaran, Iran because of bad weather. They ran out of fuel and had to make a forced landing in the Iranian desert. This IL-76, not even two years old at that time, was written off.
