Soviet Airliners in the 21st Century
How things changed! The once vast Aeroflot fleet with its universal livery has long gone, replaced by a seemingly never-ending stream of new companies and new colours.
Now dominated by western equipment, former Soviet airlines operated mainly Soviet aircraft at the beginning of the 21st century.
From purposeful freighters like the IL76, and the IL18 and AN12 veteran propliners, to airliners like the IL62 and TU134, Soviet designs had a character all of their own. They also acquired some exotic colour schemes, often not seen outside eastern Europe.
Filmed at Moscow’s major airports, plus Dresden, Bratislava and Sharjah, this is a great record of the sights and sounds of some superb airliners, as they took on new roles in the 21st Century.
