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 313 was delivered to PIA in December 1994. and flew with the airline until retirement in November 2016. It was then ferried to LEJ and now sits, engineless, in the middle of the field with an uncertain future.
