Ilyushin IL-18

Fig. 30: After the Revolution, Cubana was taken over by the Cuban Government, but political factors necessitated an arrangement with the Czech airline, C.S.A., for maintenance and operation in February 1961. The Soviet Ilyushin IL-18 (a Britannia look-alike) entered service on 23 December 1962 but did not have trans-Atlantic range.
