Military cargo aircraft flying from Azerbaijan to Israel and back

PanARMENIAN.Net - An Il-76TD heavy military transport aircraft (ZP4611 / AZQ4611, Silk Way Airlines)arrived in Israel from Azerbaijan on Wednesday, September 30 morning, according to Flightradar24.

The plane landed at the Ovda airport, and a few hours later flew back to Baku (flight ZP4612).

On September 24, two Il-76 transport aircraft (4K-AZ101 and 4K-78131) landed at the same airfield in Israel. It has been suggested that the aircraft belong to the Azerbaijani Defense Ministry, NEWSru.co.il reports.
