  • Description
With the Soviet Union’s dissolution, even Aeroflot fell apart in 1992 and numerous successor companies were established in the newly re-independent republics. So in 1993, Armenian Airlines with headquarters in Yerevan was founded. It inherited all the airplanes of the former Aeroflot directorate, including two IL-86. Herpa now releases CCCP-86118, manufactured in 1991, in the 1/500 scale. Armenian Airlines operated it with the registration EK-86118 until its bankruptcy in 2003 – it is still in operation today at the successor company Armavia. The model’s landing gear features rubber tires.
