L-1011 @ Sheremetyevo

This is a very rare photo of TAAG's L-1011 at Sheremtyevo Airport, in Moscow. This aircraft was leased from TAP in the early 90s and kept its original registration CS-TEC.

In those days, this was a very demanding operation in Russia and Flight Crews were composed by TAP pilots and flight engineers.

That is a great picture! I can only imagine how cold it would have been.

And also the extra distance of the engine placement made pos with the greater rudder area without the a fin engine? /.I recall being surprised (understatement) the first time looking out a Boings twins window, at the closeness of the engine.. I imagine t standard cabin noise is much lower than it was in the 90s? Esp t new airbus s & boing boing.

Interestingly shows extra distance engines' out on wing; viable with fin/rudder combination? How did dc10 cabin noise compare to (pleasantlybulbous) L-1011?
