Ever wondered how large jets perform on ice runways in the Polar regions. This video shows how a Russian Il-76TD practices Arctic runway operations in 2008, including a 180 degree handbrake spin!

Watch it all, as the best is saved for the end.

Really nice video. I love the Il-76.

Sliding action at 5:30, 7:20 and 12:50, for those who don't have the time to watch the whole thing right now...  

They seem to have fun down there...

The one at 5:30 looks like it was about to slide off the runway.

A cockpit video would be fun.

Spectacular!!! That was without a doubt the coolest IL-76 footage I have ever seen. Is there anything that aircraft can't do? Man, the sound of those D-30's

That video would have been better without the annoying Mexican music. Anyway, great video find! Were those slides intentional or a brief loss of directional control due to the ice?

Is it my imagination - or was he "pumpin' the brakes". The pucker factor during the 1st time must have been extreme. I like in the 7:20 one where he powers up to stop the slide.
