History

The aircraft was first conceived by Ilyushin in 1967 to meet a requirement for a freighter able to carry a payload of 40 tons (88,000 lb) over a range of 5,000 km (2,700 nautical miles (3,100 statute miles;) in less than six hours, able to operate from short and unprepared airstrips, and capable of coping with the worst weather conditions likely to be experienced in Siberia and the Soviet Union's Arctic regions. The basic layout of the plane was similar to the U.S.-built Lockheed C-141 Starlifter, but the new design had a larger cargo hold area and more powerful engines to achieve the desired performance. It first flew on March 25, 1971, and is still in production in Tashkent, Uzbekistan.

The IL-76 carried 89% of Soviet troops and 74% of the freight that was airlifted.[1] Building on that experience, the bulk of the Canadian Forces equipment into Afghanistan is flown in using civilian Il-76[2]


On August 29, 2005, the day before the levees of New Orleans gave way to the forces of Hurricane Katrina, the Russian Federation offered humanitarian aid to the United States.

An IL-76 plays a major role in the documentary Darwin's Nightmare, being used to haul fish fillets from Mwanza, Tanzania to Europe, despite major poverty in that part of Africa. This aircraft is crewed by Ukranians, who apparently sometimes haul arms on their southbound trips to Africa. The film vividly juxtaposes the poverty faced by the fishermen, children and prostitutes of Tanzania, with the fish processing firm and some European visitors who appear oblivious to the conditions around them.
