On approach in the early morning sun. One of a rapidly decreasing number of Soviet airliners at Sheremetyevo.
One man clearly wanted to be seen. At the time this aircraft was fairly new to Red Wings and sits undergoing some maintenance at Vnukovo on this fairly quiet Sunday afternoon.
Ex.Aviastar-TU. This Tupolev was reased to Orenair now.
Cleared for takeoff via RWY 23.
