The 25 passengers and crew on board the Antonov AN-26 experienced moments of panic this Monday (1/9). While flying over Siberia (Russia) one of the doors of the Russian plane opened and the cabin lowered. The temperature at the time of the incident was minus 41 degrees.
According to the East 2 West agency, the pilot was forced to make an emergency landing on a snow-covered runway in extremely adverse conditions due to the suction of luggage from the plane.
Passengers’ hats disappeared after the rear door opened shortly after takeoff from Magan Airport (Yakutsk), one of the world’s coldest regions. A man filming an aerial nightmare He heard cursing in shock through the open door behind him:
