        Yes, a very terrible tragedy. But do not you think that there were too many people on this plane?

          Pedivikia writes that there are 126 paratroopers, so more than 200 people can overload. although by weight it would hardly have happened. for he can drag more.
          family condolences.

            Refinements come. Not 200, but 105. But all the same, people are sorry.

            200 people for the IL-76 is far from overload even with a full refueling! But why he fell after take-off must be seriously understood. There were practically no such cases ... I recall Bina and Pumping ...

    If you compare the IL-76 and C-17 which is more emergency? Condolences to the families of the victims.

      Tentatively
      IL-76 - 50pcs in 45 years.
      S-17 Globmaster - 1pc for 28 years.

        It turns out that the IL-76 is still shit. The C-17 is a good plane. Is the cause of IL-76 usually pilots or equipment?

          But nothing that Ilov produced 4 times more and they are exploited 2 times longer? Yes, and they are broken pretty mediocre operators.

            moreover, C-17 is operated only by rich countries, and IL-76 is not a lazy one, therefore the quality of service and flight crews are completely different ....

          it turns out you need to look at the number of aircraft released. and something tells us that IL is many times more than Globmasters

            And the operators must be compared. We Ilah do not fall. Only the year before last when extinguishing fires, but it must be borne in mind that extinguishing is extreme conditions.

          Well, let's say the plane is not the safest.
          It must be understood that Ilov was planed almost 1000 pieces.
          And the loss of 75pcs - relative to 1000 issued - is not so much ..
          And taking into account the 90s and the local "lawlessness" - there could have been much more.
          .
          And it should be compared to a greater extent with the old S-141, whose analogue it is, as it were, and was designed in the same segment.
          And the old S-141 out of 280 issued - a lot has been lost - 20 pcs.

          S-17 - a much more advanced aircraft and more reliable. and they also use a little over 200.

            A third of the losses of Ilov are combat. And the operators are very different. Well, really. I hope you will agree that planes ceteris paribus, in Ethiopia will fall more often than in France.

              Although we and opponents are almost everything, but here - an enviable unanimity.

              And our level of losses is actually low. When compared with his real contemporary S-141

    plane crashed IL-78

    from wikipedia:
    IL-78 - Soviet tanker aircraft. It was created on the basis of the Il-76MD aircraft and is intended for refueling military aircraft in the air.

    can all the same IL-76?

      Yes, it’s also not clear ... 76 or 78 ...
      If 78, then the tanker passed the info that they were bought in Ukraine sometime ..
      And that means they were not used for their intended purpose, were modified for transport sides ... If so, then who carried out the alteration? Local craftsmen or others who sold ...
      With so many casualties, the board was to the eyeballs ...
      Condolences ...

        Algeria has both IL-76 and IL-78 (not M), only the latter are operated as transporters with a virtual refueling capability (Algerians did not even ask them to repair the UPAZs). The Algerian IL-78 were bought from Russia, Pakistan bought from Nenki after the "average repair" in Nikolaev.
        My condolences to the families of the victims ...

          Why lie like that? Ukraine has sold 6 boards to Algeria.
          Or do you know the knowledge of UPAZ decided to be smart?
          Do not...
