Iraqi Airways Ilyushin Il-76MD

File under ‘where are they now’. Pictured at London Heathrow in 1986, this freighter was operated by Iraqi Airways – essentially the Iraqi Air Force – until it was acquired by Aeroflot in 1988. Then it transferred to Uzbek firm TAPC Aviatrans in 1992 (registration UK-76821) and has since been leased to airlines including Airstars and Silk Way Airlines. Data from Flightglobal Ascend Online.
