    I love this plane
    I always wanted to board it
    Maybe I could have it as a private jet someday if I had cash 🤔 😂

    We think in civil aviation America and Russia have no competition to face.China and Arab world must venture into to invest getting the aeroplanes readied at their doorsteps to combat unemployment and efficiency in affordable air travel.

    As empresas aéreas no Brasil são bitolados e não investem em recursos humanos e nem no bem estar, remuneração são infeficientes e só dão prejuízo. Obtusos bitolados e sem planejamento, administração.

    So you're saying... To make a newer better plane they needed bigger engines that didn't fit under the wing... And instead of squishing them anyway and making a software update (*cough* 737 Max), the Russians did the responsible thing and made a new plane. Good on you Russians. Nice plane.

    I like Russian designs because they are robust. I like the Russian people, too. The men have a certain toughness and the women are extremely beautiful. They made great cold war enemies because you could respect them. Not like the Chinese. I wish Russia & The West could unite against them and bring about a New Golden Age...

    So Russia doesn't use Boeing or Airbus for its fleets? Weird I wonder how much pressure and difficult they make it for every airport? Shrugs shoulders**

      Aeroflot has used a lot of Airbus and Boeing aircraft, as they are certified for international standards and have lower maintenance costs and greater efficiency that Russual aircraft.

    i don'd understand why airlines doesn't use Russian flights for example this IL96 you can compare to Boeing 777 family 0r A330 family and the unit cost is less than 20% of those flights is it because of the operating cost or lack of production or is it even safety issues??? any idea????

      Yes it is. The track is called "Over Time" and is part of the TVclip audio library. Techmoan just happens to use it and it has become something of a trademark for his videos. The original song can be heard at . Hope you have a nice tape deck to listen to it with!

    I would love to see a short body Il-96 with 4 RB211-535E5 engines. This would be very quiet, economical; and could bring international flights to shorter runway airports.

    The trend is now well established , ETOPS and nothing else . The best Russian plane in production now is the Sukhoi Superjet 100 . It is a nice looking plane , liked by the flying publin and really good value when compared to a CS-300 or A318 .

    It sez here in the Narrator's description that the newest of the line had its wings span increased evn further. The 1 thing I always admire western wing-designs are that they do not have too wide spanning wings & that they incorporate essentially a hybrid mix of deltas for the in-board segment of things, while the adjoining out-board extension are comprised of the usual - high wing-loading type typical of all passenger-liner category aircrafts. The most notable examples being Boeing's C-17 Globemaster III & the Airbus's A 380 wing designs. With especially the A 380's wings being evn a step further ahead of (the figurative) "Curve" or everyone else, at by being in fact having a very unique pair of the evr so slightly-marginally curved 'Gull Wings' & at the in-board, running towerds the wing-root, that area actually plunge downwards quite dramatically of any wing-form I've seen, likely in direct accordance or compliance with (aero-dynamic) airflow. Russian aircraft concerns shud likewise explore the same & apply this approach to future versions of yor Country's venerable Il-96s.

  • Bahjat Tabbara

    I LOVE the Il-96, and even its predecessor the Il-86 was under-rated, despite being reliable with no crashes or issues in their operations. That being said, they were obsolete even when they were released. At best, they were a significant upgrade over older variants, at worst, they were not competitive with any of their Western rivals at Boeing or Airbus; and to be fair, even rivals that went defunct were slightly better. The Il-96 in particular was at least 10 years late and suffered from 10 years of bad marketing; barely 40 were made. Had they focused on the cargo-freight variant, it would have no doubt done much better, especially as Boeing over-charge for it.
    Ilyushin's marketing was never good enough. Even it's admitted that the PS90A1 engines were never competitive in a global market. It's not difficult to make evolutionary changes (improved engines, improved wings, a small stretch etc) but that is once the baseline model has sold reasonable amounts. The Airbus A340 (its direct competitor) had much better after-sales support, but even it was eclipsed eventually by the Boeing 777-series, & even its own stablemate; the Airbus A330 took away some of its market share, so the Il-96 should have been better prepared to try to win 300-400 orders, possibly beating the Boeing 747.

    Looks like there have been very few accidents with both the A340 and the IL 96 and 0 fatalities since sales started in the 90s

    Wonder why they didn't make a 2 engine version of the IL96 which airbus did with the A340 and A330. They share the same wings etc.

    Who needs to reinvent the wheel again. Soviets and again to be Russians are good at doing that. Result was worse planes then Concordski or 747 where they could save time and money by simply copy it. Then with saved money pay new scientists to advance forward.
