4K) (Rare) Volga-Dnepr Ilyushin IL-76 Landing 28C Arrival | Planespotting Chicago O’Hare Airport**** SEE PINNED COMMENTS FOR AIRCRAFT IDENTIFICATION ****
Generally these Russian aircraft are really very rare here at the ol’ Chicago O’Hare but this is now my second Il-76 in this weird “Era of Wildcard” as I like to call the current times. Anything goes!! I could really get used to this… seeing the random Antonov or Ilyushin cargo sortie to my little
corner of the globe on a regular basis. It doesn’t matter if I’ve seen it a bunch of times, I still go because every time is special to me. This time I got the landing on runway 28C, which, don’t get me wrong, I do love the arrival for 10C, but there is just something about getting the touchdown up-close as well as the reverse thrust in there. Plus I can get the taxiback through the chain link fence usually.
I also zoomed up north to the famous Northeast cargo ramp to get it one more time. Due to traffic I was a little too late to get the pull-in and shutdown but I did get the pushback into position for the un-load …you un-load/load an IL-76 from the rear.
