Hi all,

found this at FliegerRevue from 1977. This are all precursors of the good known Iljuschin Il.86. They have all the same designation Il.86 ???

Re: Il.86 precursors

Interesting, I do wonder what the high-bypass engines in the Tristarski-configuration would have been. Such engines would have made the aircraft a lot more economical than it turned out.

Re: Ilyushin Il-86 preliminary design project......

Dear Maveric, here is a drawing with a short description describing an early version when the Ilyushin Il-86 was still a "project". Note how similar it is to the Ilyushin Il-62M, with the same Soloviev D-30K engines (a modelmaking project for Overkiller perhaps ;D ?). The lack of compound sweep on the wing trailing-edge does look odd......

The drawing and description come from the July 1972 issue of Air Enthusiast......

Re: Ilyushin Il-86 preliminary design project......

Dear Boys and Girls, obviously the Ilyushin design bureau soon realised that a rear-engined configuration was incompatible with wide-body airliner design (I wonder why BAC didn't realise this with their BAC 3-11; oops, off topic :eek: ). Here is an article revealing the changes made to the Ilyushin Il-86 "project"; the drawing is now much closer to the real production aircraft......

The article comes from the November 1972 issue of Air Enthusiast......
