In Russia, plane rides you.

A UTair flight froze to the ground at Igarka airport in Siberia on Tuesday, and passengers had to get out and push the 30-ton aircraft to get it moving again.

One of the men in the video is heard saying: "Real men can plant a tree, build a house, and push a plane," according to the Siberian Times.

The temperatures in the region above the Arctic Circle hit below 52C, and the brakes froze because they used the wrong kind of grease.

There Are 80 Falcons on This Plane and It Is Glorious

Flying is such a hassle. What with security and the food and the delays? Ugh. Airports! Am I right?

Now, imagine having to fly not just yourself, but also 80 falcons. What? “Uh, excuse me, passengers, this is your captain speaking, and you better buckle up because this is going to be a bumpy flight.”

This Saudi prince bought 80 seats on an airplane so that his falcons didn’t have to use their wings. However, while that might seem strange to us yanks here in the states, it’s actually quite common in the middle east, where falconry is pretty popular. Qatar and Etihad Airways both have policies for bringing birds on planes.

Still, all these birds on a plane should have Samuel L. Jackson calling his agent and saying, “Put on your helmet because you’re about to hit the ceiling: ‘Snakes on a Pane 2: Birds on a Plane.’”
