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.

Researchers have identified "with a high degree of certainty" that this piece of metal found in 1991 was a part of Amelia Earhart's plane, which disappeared July 2, 1937.

According to researchers at The International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery (TIGHAR), which has long been investigating the last, fateful flight taken by Earhart 77 years ago, the aluminum sheet is a patch of metal installed on the Electra during the aviator's eight-day stay in Miami, which was the fourth stop on her attempt to circumnavigate the globe.
If true, based on where the metal was found, it would mean that Amelia Earhart didn't crash and rather "the two became castaways and eventually died on the atoll, which is some 350 miles southeast of Howland Island."

Apparently, the plane wasn't actually on fire. The cold air from the A/C was condensing the moisture in the cabin air, making it look like a smoke-filled cabin.
