Hi Having pondered about this for ages, could anyone enlighten me on the background for the different colors on the numbers of Russian fighters and transports? Never understood why some are red, others blue, yellor or white for that matter? Is this related to squadron-like assignment on the allocated base? Thanks
It seems one of the best photo resources for russophile plane enthusiast, russianplanes.net is permanently closed. The reasons are still a bit sketchy but it seems this has to do with the alleged smuggling of drugs via diplomatic post from Argentina to Russia. Argentine gendarmerie released a tape which shows drug packages removed out of a Il-96 (RF-96023), belonging to the State Transport Company Rossiya. Seems the owner of the site “…decided to delete the site, because we have nothing to do with it.” More details see here: https://en.crimerussia.com/drugmafia/fli
