A very muddy air strip in Russia

leave a comment »

It was time for this UTAir Antonov An-24 in Bodaybo, Russia to takeoff. The runway is a pile of mud. The tail keeps sliding to the right. But the pilot doesn’t care. Like General Winter, General Mud is his friend. So he’s getting airborne, one way or another.

And here’s the view from inside the plane. The first half of the video is taxiing out for the take-off.

Thanks, Ursarodinia
