    That’s Borat flying that plane isn’t it? Making flight on Russian plane for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan!

    Wow. Very impressive vid!

    I guess it took a few elephants to tow that IL-18 out of the sand…

    how about a/c was taking off DOWNWIND. Watch all the dust and smoke at the end when a/c comes to a stop

    you can clearly see the nose drop while accelerating. probably the elevator was stuck. lso see the pilot slamming the yoke, not knowing why the nose did not come up. nothing to do with the wind
