A stock aircraft called Ilyushin IL-62.

And we continue with the series of soviet passenger and cargo aircraft ;-). This is the IL-62, a large 4-engined long range plane, which is holding the world record for landing on the shortest runway: In 1989 the east-german Pilot Kallbach and his crew landed one Interflug IL-62 on the only 900 metres long grass runway located in Stölln/Rhinow in the former GDR. This was a long planned action to honor the flight pioneer Otto Lilienthal who did test his apparatures there. The plane now is a museum, and I admire it every weekend when we take out our sailplanes for flying…

Back to my craft: It is almost the size as the original one, flies really nice and is easy to land. As always, 1 toggles flaps and 2 toggles airbrakes. Because of the engines used, it lacks reverse thrust. May be changed later in an IL-62M version ;-)
