Found in network: Russia, Magadan - An-2 crash immediately after takeoff

During my regular surf to find news, i found An-2 crash video, which was not much talked about...

Video

In the video, the man immediately notices that the plane is old and probably dangerous. Nevertheless - he did not change his mind to fly!!! What can I say ... Thank you, we have now a cool video, but ... we must cherish yourself!
