Throughout the year, there are always a few special aircraft passing by at Eindhoven Air Base that are not commonplace at the base. This time it was an Ilyushin Il-76 from Silk Way Airlines. Silk Way Airlines is an Azerbaijani private cargo airline with its headquarters and flight operations at Heydar Aliyev International Airport in Baku. The company operates freight services connecting Europe and Asia, the United States and Africa. Services are also offered for governmental and non-governmental organizations. The company was founded in 2001 and began commercial operations on October 6, 2001. The company currently operates a single An-124 and five Il-76 heavy transport aircraft. It is therefore a small company whose aircraft are therefore not seen very often in the Netherlands. The arrival of this Il-76 to Eindhoven therefore attracted the attention of the necessary fans who were gathered around the airport. The aircraft arrived from Leipzig in Germany on the morning of January 15, 2021. It was only just light when the Ilyushin touched down its wheels in Eindhoven. The visit would not last long, the aircraft would immediately be loaded with equipment on the Mil West platform. The Ilyushin Il-76 was due to depart from Eindhoven around 11.30 am, this time with destination Baghdad in Iraq.
