Cool.

Did AI actually use the leased IL-62 regularly on India-Paris operations or was this just a one-off?

Nope, this was perhaps a one-off thing. The only flights on the IL-62 were to & from Moscow.

Sumantra - here is an Air India ad for the IL ......unfortunately the 76, not the 62.
The 76 itself is a gem of a find: trust you to get such a lovely ad, literally out of thin air!
Cheers, Sumantra.

My God...an amazing find, 747-237! I? really wonder how you can simply unearth these beauties at the drop of a hat. And one at Orly that too: on a possible rare substitution from SVO.
Cheers, Sumantra.

Oh my God...this is as rare as rare can be! The thrust reversers...and which airport is this? At first glance, this looks like Terminal-F at SVO. Amazing find, with a great angle! Thank you for sharing this with us.
Cheers, Sumantra.

Yes, I think you might be right on the airport & terminal, my friend.

What gets me not-so-sure is the Mercury minivan (a bit incongruous for the Soviet Union, even though we are talking about the Glasnost era). If this is indeed SVO Temrinal-F, this is almost the exact spot from where the highly popular SU 234 SVO-DEL A332 service sets out from. These are the far gates to the right, with the boundary wall a bit jagged and non-uniform here.
Cheers, Sumantra.

Here is a relatively clearer version of the earlier pic I've posted (if you can ignore the watermark).

Lovely: I really admire how you dig up some many gems from the past and post them here, for our joy and admiration. This thread is especially of interest to me, and while most of the sources around dry up, you seem to discover new gems here and there!
Cheers, Sumantra.

Sumantra, back with a new one for you : here she is in Shannon in September 1989, at the end of her lease to Air India.

Sumantra, you might fancy this ..... my mom came across one of my father's old Air India "broadsheets" (these were timetables for the flight crew from the AI operations office) from back in 1986. It has some info about the leased Il-76 freighter ops.
I've been trying to find one of his old broadsheets from the time when the Il-62M was in service for Air India, but have been unsuccessful thus far. I (or rather my mother) will keep looking .... untill then enjoy some Il-76 info !


Sumantra, if you ever see this …… happy to report that after about 10 years of searching, I’ve finally found a copy of my Dad’s AI operations “broadsheet” from March 1989, with the IL-62 schedule on it. Pic coming soon !

Here you go.....flight schedule of CCCP-86512; March 1989.
My Dad's flight crew "broadsheet" saw light of day after close to 33 years.

Here's a wonderful custom-made model (regrettably not mine) of CCCP-86512 in 1:400 scale. Looks pretty accurate, but for the small Centaurs on the engines.
