Speaking of slow-speed production... Is there a thread about the IL-96, or about Ilyushin in general?

Apparantly only a photo thread:
https://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1929819

I lately read that UAC is obliged by the Russian government to keep the Tupolev & Ilyushin lines open for strategic reasons: should Russia ever enter war with a Western power or NATO, they will still have knowledge to build (albeit technically outdated) planes on their own.

Since the domestic versions of the MC-21 with PD-14 engines are still taking a lot of time, these will be the only 3 planes they can build completely themselves at this time.

Edit: it was here:

The IL-96-400M passenger aircraft project, although officially recognised as commercially unviable, is nevertheless aimed at sustaining and developing the all-round competences of VASO. The facility also participates in other UAC programmes such as the MC-21 advanced narrow-body, the Sukhoi Superjet 100 (SSJ100) regional jet, the Ilyushin IL-114-300 upgraded regional turboprop, and the Ilyushin IL-76MD-90A transport aircraft. Maintaining and upgrading such production capabilities is part of the political strategy of preserving Russia’s aviation legacy and its independence from the west in view of the economic sanctions.

Does anyone know if Alrosa Airlines still flies their TU-154, and if so, what routes does it still fly?

According to my information, Alrosa still flies one Tu-154 on a route Irkutsk (IKT) - Mirny (MJZ)
Nearest flight is tomorrow. Flight number 6R542

Sorry if I misinformed you! All I know, is that Alrosa still has 1 Tu-154 (RA-85757) employed on regular flights. Airpane is based in Mirny airport Together with another 5 154s and some 134s
FlightRadar shows Tu-134 scheduled for 23rd of February

In other CIS aviation news, I've noticed some interesting pictures of the assembly line at Aviastar-SP:

https://twitter.com/RALee85/status/1...858499/photo/1

On the right and in front are the Il-76MD-90A which are on order by the Russian MOD as replacement for their earlier predecessors. But the thing that actually is interesting is the Tu-204 on the left from Cairo Aviation..

Is it their single machine still in operation that is getting its C- or D-check, or is it one of its 4 former stored machines which is being converted for the Rossiya Special Detachment or a VIP customer ?
Also, the machines operated by Cairo Aviation are the -120 variant, which have RR RB211-535 engines and Western avionics which makes it more or less equal to the B757.

If it is being converted for Russian customers they will probably rebuild it with PS-90A (as -100 or Tu-214) or with PS-90A2 engines (as Tu-204SM).

The short-haul Tupolev Tu-134 passenger aircraft has performed its final revenue service in Russia. On May 22, flight 6R-693 operated from Mirny to Novosibirsk’s Tolmachevo Airport and in doing so closed a long chapter of commercial operations for the iconic Soviet-era airplane.

Operated by Alrosa Airlines, the final Tu-134B-3 – with registration number RA-65693 – was one of hundreds created by the Tupolev Design Bureau. The type, which first flew in 1963, was designed to accommodate up to 80 passengers.

RA-65693 was commissioned in May 1980 and built at the Kharkiv State Aircraft Manufacturing Company, now in Ukraine.
Tu-134 – one of the most mass produced Soviet civil aircraft with more than 850 units, including the pre-production prototypes.



Meanwhile, the final commercially-operated Tu-134 aircraft will take its rightful place in the Air History Museum at Novosibirsk, whilst all country’s remaining transport Tu-134s remain in service with the Russian ministry of defense.

No. Tupolev and Illyushin and Sukhoi and Mig were rolled into one company named UAC some years back. It is building a new plane branded as an "Irkut" at present and has dropped the old names for civil airliners. That is the end of Tupolev and Illyushin then.

It is probably important to say, that in Russia design bureaus are separated from serial plants
Which means Tupolev, or MikoyanGurevich (MiG), or Sukhoi are not producing anything by themselves except prototypes and technical documentation.
While the same serial plant can make Tupolev and Ilyushin (or any other) airplanes at the same time.
For example assembly plant in Irkutsk is not just main production site for MC-21 airliner, but also a"birth place" for Yakovlev Yak-130 trainer and Sukhoi Su-30 fighter jets (not to mention they make some parts for A320 program)

As sponge_bob correctly said all major design bureaus were rolled into one company named United Aircraft (UAC)
Still, each design bureau has it's responsibilities
Tupolev's main project is next gen strategic bomber (code name PAK-DA)
just 'cartoon' so far, sorry!


Another project is a supersonic business jet (name unknown). Some info here
