So I thought I’d go give some love to one of the forgotten liveries in Infinite Flight and go take the good old Yakutia Airlines Dash 8-Q400 out for a spin and ended up in frosty Sakha Republic in Russia’s Far East. 🇷🇺

Picking up our aircraft in Yakutsk in whopping -43°C (-46°F) weather… 🥶
Lights out (or on) and away we go 🛫
Gorgeous view of the Lena River departing Yakutsk!
Finally some light somewhere over the Siberian tundra… also the most light we’ll get on this flight!
Final turn on approach into our first stop Srednekolymsk, about 800nm north east of Yakutsk 🪆
Seconds from touchdown 67° North in an almost warm -34°C (-29°F) weather…
And off on our second leg of the flight even further north!
Commencing our final descend into Pevek
