A solemn ceremony dedicated to rollout of another Il-76MD-90A military-transport aircraft painted in livery of the Russian Ministry of Defense was held on June 9th 2015 in Ulyanovsk, TASS reports.

“The same month the jet was delivered to the Ilyushin Company’s flight test and development base; it will be handed over to the customer in August. It is planned that the aircraft would participate in MAKS-2015 airshow,” Aviastar-SP CEO Sergey Dementyev said.

The Governor of Ulyanovsk Region Sergey Morozov added that the jet would be named after the outstanding aircraft designer Viktor Livanov. “As a pilot I have been operating the Il aircraft for 30 years. It is a great aircraft, I love it and hope that it will serve Russia for years to come,” Commander-in-Chief of the military-transport aviation Vladimir Benediktov said.
