  1. Too many plane videos? Hey bright side do you like airplanes. So manny videos of a airplanes. You made 300 airplane videos. Wow. You should be a pilot bright side. Love the plain videos. Keep going bright side.

  2. You are making up a fairy tale I lived in the High Arctic for 30 years and no passenger plane crossed the 'North Pole'. Best to do some research and find the true north point the 4 great rivers which flow making the Arctic seas have a low salt content

    Apply some logic and you will be at a beginning point of true knowledge about this planet

  3. The Boeing 747-400 and A340 series were able to fly long-distance passenger planes. After the Russian open airspace flew over, the Arctic routes gradually opened up. Many flights from the US East to East Asia are based on the Arctic route. The Arctic certification is very strict. No one in the Arctic can reach the accident site within two hours. The hungry polar bear is hungry, southern tropical The country's delicious meat will make the polar bears drool.

In 2001, Aeroflot posted a $49 million profit after receiving $250 million in over-fly fees meaning fees paid by their competitors for using Russian air space is the only thing keeping Aeroflot afloat.
