What lazy bum is taking this photo right now? (via Siberian Times)

It's not Thanksgiving in Russia tomorrow or ever, but these Russians who almost got stuck in Siberia were more determined to get home than Steve Martin and John Candy combined in Planes, Trains and Automobiles. Also, because they fixed the plane, they didn't need any trains or automobiles. This video was taken at Igarka airport, above the Arctic circle in the Krasnoyarsk Krai region of Siberia. Most of the passengers were oil and gas-field workers stationed in the far north, which explains why they didn't seem to mind the prospect of going outside in -52ºC (-61.6ºF) and pushing the plane until it could start.
