I just passed by HSSS threshold rwy 36 in my car and saw that Rada's EW-450TR obviously did an overrun and came to a stop 300 m southwest of the rwy 36 threshold. Cannot say whether on take-off or landing or when it happened. Right wing is bent down. Traffic seems to be going on as normal. I took a very bad pictures with my cheap mobile phone, photography being not easy around HSSS.

Stay safe,

Sounds like the end for that then! At least all on board presume to be ok.

It's the rainy season now, big puddles visible on the posted pics. Not the first time a crew used to dry conditions get caught with their trousers down...

Folks,
I am really surprised there are VC10skis still flying. Even "in the day", they were hardly stellar performers.
Tootle pip!!
PS: They are built like a tank, with a bit of luck there is little or no damage, just hose the mud off and good to go??

She's now sitting on Apron 1 (Military / Cargo), big midsplash still on the port side. According to what I read on the internet she's the last Il-62 operating commercially. And then there is - obviously - ST-PRA, the Sudanese government's Il-62. Delivered as new in 12/2004 (built in 10/1996). I saw her taking off and landing several times, and no smoke trails from the D-30s.

Air Koryo in North Korea have a couple listed in their passengern fleet, plus another two in VIP configuration.

Does it look like it will carry on in service?

It was reported by SlovakAviation yesterday that the aircraft is intact and will resume operations in September.

Has it made it out of HSSS yet?

Russian aircraft tend to be fairly solidly built with underdeveloped airfields and basic maintenance in mind. One advantage of rear engined designs is that the motors remain undamaged after an event like this, where as under wing pylon mounted ones are often torn off with corresponding damage to the airframe.

Jack it up, sort out the landing gear, bit of panel beating and its good to go.

EW-450TR is now in Kazan. So it must have been glued back together for a ferry flight at least. Seen there on 12-09-18.

Interesting I'm surprised to see it in Europe given that the type was banned from Chinese airspace a while ago:

I don't know if IL-62s are banned from Europe, but generally humanitarian flights (with the proper paperwork and authority) are exempt anyway.
