  • Published by Ozgur Tore

utair-pushplaneSiberian air passengers had to get out and push their plane in temperatures of minus 52 degrees Celsius in Russia.

The extraordinary story emerged after a passenger posted a video on YouTube showing a group of cheery travellers pushing the Tupolev plane along the snow-covered runway in Igarka, which is beyond the Arctic Circle.

Passengers rallied to the rescue when oil in the plane's landing gear iced up, according to UTair, the airline whose livery the plane carries.

According to the Komsomolskaya Pravda website, there were cries of "Let's go!" as two rows of passengers, dressed in heavy coats and thick gloves, each took a wing and apparently began shoving the aircraft into position.

"We all want to get home," one of the burly volunteers was quoted as saying.
