Passengers give frozen airliner a push in Russia

Thursday, November 27, 2014

A recent video that has become viral shows Russian airline passengers pushing an airplane in Siberia, after its brake pads froze solid, in -60°F.

From BBC News:
The plane was trying to take off from the Russian town of Igarka, but was unable to move after the temperature fell to -52C, the RIA Novosti news agency reports. Passengers on board the flight, many of them shift workers, apparently offered to lend a hand, fearing that otherwise their journey home would be delayed, The Siberian Times reports. The Katekavia airline flight later took off and landed safely in the city of Krasnoyarsk.
