Photo Comment

In the older days the Paris Air Show often brought very interesting Soviet transports, such as Il-76s and Antonov 22s like this one. They were not present during the show itself, but during the days before and after. CCCP-09333, seen here taxiing in after landing, with its four engines and eight contra-rotating props making an unbelievable sound, first flew in May 1972. It was withdrawn from use in the mid 1990s, and broken up for scrap at Ivanovo during 1997.
