      LOL that reminds me of the redneck olympics/truck mud pit, “If the mud ain’t flying, you ain’t trying”!

  • mE.!

    Strange…. Going inside the plane seems to have made all the snow melt.

      indeed, clearly not the same flight.

    Most Antonov An-24 planes were decommissioned in the 1980′s because of them being to loud for modern day airports. The
    biggest illegal gun runner in the world Viktor Bout took this
    opportunity to buy them up in bulk and the factories that made extra
    parts for these planes. He has used them ever since the 1980′s because
    of there abilities to land on anyhting including dirt roads. A movie
    based on the true story “Lord Of War” (2005) was made starring Nicolas
    Cage and also a book about him. Viktor has been known for his notorious
    landings and take offs, Sometimes crashing the planes in the process
    due to hasty landings to escape radar or because of overloading them
    with the weight of ammunition and guns. Viktor is from Russia. After
    studying viktor for years, this take off seems like one of his stunts.
    #1) Its a Antonov An-24 #2) Viktor always fakes his planes names, the article states “UTAir’s fleet does not currently list any An-24′s” which means it was faked. Just some food for thought.

    UTAir lists 19 An-24 planes on its feet: http://www.utair.ru/en/aircrafts/index.html. But it doesn’t fly to Bodaybo.

    I just came across this video, landed at this airport about a week ago, it is a dirt strip and during the spring season the Ice and snow melts leaving a “slush” and contary to statements below, this could be the real thing as our landing was quite muddy.

    Further this route is serviced from the regional City being Irkutsk by two airlines both of them using AN 24′s on a daily basis being IrAero. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IrAero and Angara http://www.angara.aero
