Caption: Aircraft maintenance hangar. Scaffolding around a jet aircraft during routine maintenance. The aircraft is an Ilyushin Il-80 (also known as the Il-86VKP), NATO reporting name 'Maxdome'. It is a converted Ilyushin Il-86 'Camber' airliner, equipped as an airborne command post for the Russian President and staff during war. Notable differences to the airliner include the large satellite communications dome on top of the fuselage, the lack of passenger windows and the extra electrical generator pods under the wings. The aircraft entered service in 1987. This is the Voronezh Public Aircraft Construction Society (VASO) assembly shop. Photographed in 2007 in Voronezh, Russia.
