Airliners that No Longer Fly
Runway 34 - Glattbrugg, Switzerland 
Featured Aircraft: 1957 Ilyushin IL-14

Reto Seipel has been a pilot for 15 years, flying for Swissair/SWISS, Emirates and Edelweiss Air, so you can be sure he knows a thing or two about the aircraft hovering over the dining area of his hangar-inspired restaurant. Although he would’ve preferred a Douglas DC-3 or a Convair 440 Metropolitan, those aircraft were too expensive, so he opted for a DC-3-inspired propeller plane – a 1957 Ilyushin IL-14 that was flown by the Soviet Air Force on aerial survey missions.
