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. -- Stuart Feigin This message has nothing to do with Oracle Corporation. I do not represent them in any way.
