IL-90 is a long-haul passenger aircraft, created at the end of 80-x - in the early 90-ies. 20 century OKB Ilyushin. The project was developed in parallel with IL-96 as a replacement option, and amendments thereto IL-62.
The aircraft was designed to transport loads of up to 20 tons over a distance of up to 9 thousand. Kilometers at cruising speed 850 kilometers per hour. There were also options to increase the distance to 10-11 thousand. Km of 20 tonnes and up to 12-13 thousand. Km of 15 tons.

In December 1988, the aircraft has been approved by the general designer. However, because of the prolonged economic crisis in our country, the project was not completed.
On the waves of the radio station "Echo of Moscow» March 17 2014, the Deputy Commander of the Airborne Troops, Colonel Nariman Timergazin revealed that IL-90 created for airborne troops. "Now it is a very serious work on the new IL-90. The aircraft must appear ", - he said, without revealing the characteristics of the machine. This information was picked up and replicated by many media.
But, apparently, it was a slip of the tongue. According to experts, on the basis of IL-90 it would hardly have created a military transport aircraft. Most likely, the colonel had in mind the project Il-76MD-90A (IL-476).
Today, in the interests of the Airborne Forces used military transport machines AN-22, 12-AN, IL-76, Which replace in the near future, according to the plans, will come IL-476.
