For all you Russian jet geeks, I found three 8 minute videos on Youtube of an Il-76 flight from the Russian Base in Antarctica to Cape Town.

Many shots and sequences from the flight deck (Take Off, Cruise, Arrival) with all the sounds and rigmarole required to get the beast into the air, as well as shots from the navigator's nest, high above the frozen wastelands of Antarctica.

Could the Captain sit any further back during climbout?

Absolutely great, watched all three videos not stop. What were they actually carrying?

It's an astonishing video. Gives real feeling of being there.
I am not quite sure that that was a Russian station though. Should check what active bases Russia has there.
There is another great video of landing of IL-76 on the ice runway - it's right there on YouTube.

Thanks. You made my day.

Wow that thing looks like hard work.

I was amazed a the difference in the positions of the 4 throttle levers on takeoff power. I only have a couple of hours in an F27 and a few more in a 737 and I can't ever remember them needing to be more that a couple of degrees apart to produce the same thrust. Is that normal?

Why do they set the thrust to full chat on final approach and then again just crossing the threshold?

I think take off on the ice runway may need applying more or less thrust manually.
Rudder is not enough.

On approach I missed the moment they disengaged AP and AT.
I don't know about IL-76. But for TU-154 they use about 80-85% thrust with full flaps/slats down - and more if the head wind is strong.
Anyway, after flying on Russian classic jets for hundreds of times (as a pax) I heard pretty usual engines' audio.
And when the captain said "nominal" (idle mode) - they flared and touchdown was smooth.

It's a hard work, guys. Even after watching those 3 parts I felt tired  Wow!

Another interesting (and scary) Il-76 clip.

Yes it's a Russian airfield: Novolazarevskaya, serving the base with the same name.
