Arctic IL-76TD Makes 180 Degree Spin On Ice Runway

Sun Mar 31, 2013 11:16 am

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...

I'll do my own airline. With Blackjack. And hookers. In fact, forget the airline.

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.
