|Did you ever get to fly in one of those things? Is it the closest thing to the millennium falcon? What's it like to look out that bottom death-star window in the air?|

|II never got a ride in one of these Ilyushins, but believe me, I would have loved to sit in that navigator's station flying the Hindu Kush. That would have been awesome! (It was cool enough in C-130's)
t's funny you should mention the Millenium Falcon, because that's exactly what these fly-by-night former soviet cargo airlines remind me of. I kept expecting a Wookie to get out of one of these things after it rolled up to the parking apron.

|Your Slavic character with the gold chain and chest hair could be a semi-bald wookie.|

|Man, are you on top of this.
He is the only character that I significantly changed from an actual crew that I met out there, and that was to make him more wookie-like.
They have something like a seven man crew on those Ilyushins, but I only ever saw these three guys together. No idea what happened to the other four- so Kyrgyz 606 effectively has a three person crew.
