It is a Russian Cargo airline and they have different aircraft too. They have an office in Montreal too. Beautiful aircraft with fly by wire and the nose drops down so that you can unload the aircraft. Can carry 4 x Mil 8 helicopters on it at the same time as I have seen it.

I saw one of these flying over Bothell WA a couple weeks ago. It was still pretty low & quite loud which drew my attention to look up, saw the 4 engines and thought "that doesn't look like a 747..."
I think it was leaving PAE to head to the east coast.
