The Ilyushin Il-86  is a short/medium-range wide-body jet airliner.

It was the USSR's first wide-body and the world's second four-engined wide-body.

Designed and tested by the Ilyushin design bureau in the 1970s, it was certified by the Soviet aircraft industry, manufactured and marketed by the USSR.

The Il-86 was the penultimate Soviet-era airliner to be designed (preceding its sister model the Il-96, which first flew in 1988).

Developed during the Leonid Brezhnev era, which was marked by stagnation in many sectors of Soviet industry, the Il-86 used engines more typical of the 1960s, spent a decade in development, and failed to enter service in time for the Moscow Olympics, as was originally intended.

The type was used by Aeroflot and successor post-Soviet airlines and only three of the total 106 examples were exported.

In service, it gained recognition as a safe and reliable model with no fatal incidents during three decades of passenger-carrying operations.

At the beginning of 2012, only four Il-86s remained in service, all with the Russian Air Force.
