Cessna 172 landing on the ice. Baikal lake


AirVuz contributor Makhorov, whose video of Russia's Kamchatka Peninsula was picked as a winner of the Drone Video of the Week, brings another stunner from eastern Russia.  He was able to film a Cessna Model 172 plane landing on a very frozen Lake Baikal, the giant Siberian lake which is home to nearly 25% of the earth's liquid freshwater.  The video includes both drone footage and footage from a camera mounted to the tip of the wing of the plane, one of the most popular general aviation models.
