An example of the very rare Ilyushin Il-76MF has made a visit to Australia, with JY-JID ‘361’ operated by Jordan International Air Cargo visiting Perth and Melbourne this week.
The freighter arrived from Colombo, Sri Lanka as flight ‘RJZ361’ on October 25 before later departing to Melbourne.
The Il-76MF is a stretched and re-engined (with Aviadvigatel PS-90As) development of the Soviet era Il-76. JY-JID is reportedly one of two Il-76MFs operated by Jordan International Air Cargo.
