This newsgroup was so helpful the last time I saw
an unusual airliner, I thought I'd try again.

Wednesday, Feb. 23, 2000 at 5:15PM I saw what
appeared to be an IL-62 at Las Vegas airport, but
I'm not sure.  Is there anything else with a
similar configuration?  It looked like a stretched
DC-9 with four engines in the rear.  It was
painted grey, with no markings I could make out.
It was a few hundred yards away.  I also couldn't
read a reg number.  When it departed, the noise
shook the terminal building.  Other aircraft can't
even be heard over the normal sounds in the
terminal, but this one dronwed out conversations.
It also left a trail of black smoke.

Anyone know who or what I saw?  Isn't that kind of
noisy jet illegal these days?

Please respond via e-mail (after you remove
'spambegone from my address.)  I have trouble
receiving this news group.
