Superb stuff as usual Joe :thanx:

Great bunch endangered or trenathed species. Will not be too long before classic 747s and Galaxys are gone I think.
Is the 727 a fire/tow trainer. Don't think they used then since the first Gulf War?

Yup, its about to become a fire trainer. There is another one on the outside of the Terminal building near the DHL office, not sure what it's fate is. Will try to get a pic.

RA-76503 Ilyushin Il-76TD-90VD Volga-Dnepr is currently based at Cape Town for the Antarctic season.
Came across these pics of it from a bit further south :cool2:

Even though it's half hidden, that has to be the best looking military transport around. It's just an amazing aircraft :champion:

Back to that IL-76-90VD, my mate Skip got onto that airplane yesterday for a working trip down south. He posted these on his Instagram account. Lucky sod...
