The second TU-204 never arrived as sometime in late 1999 the airline went bankrupt.The TU-204 went on to join Kras Air.
The IL-86 made by JC-Wings in 1:400 scale, RA-86145, was a late production example built in 1991 and delivered originally to AJT Air International. By April 1997 she was wearing Transeuropean colours but by May 2000 had taken up Kras Air titles. Kras Air continued to operate her in Transeuropean livery for over 7 years though eventually she was repainted in the AirUnion colours. Following their collapse in 2008 she was stored and was still to be seen by late 2010 without engines at Krasnoyarsk.
