Nice pics and storyline Larry. At first glance the Ilyushin IL-14P reminds me of the Boeing Stratoliner I have. The Stratoliner is a conventional gear aircraft and the 14-P is a tricycle gear gear, but the fuselage of both are very similar! Yours looks to be very stable and a pleasure to fly!


Very nice Larry, thanks for sharing!


Rick :cool:

Thanks Rick. The Ilyushin 14 does look a bit like the Strat. The Strat is a bit thicker looking in the fuselage and the landing gear a bit shorter, but both are smooth flyers.


I did a post of the Strat back in 2010.
