Descended down digg: A 15 year old boy flies in the wing of a Boeing 737 and survives the entire ordeal!
Not sure why it was so incredible? Here's what he was up against:
- 2 hour, 1,300 kilometers (808 mile) flight to Moscow
- Flying at 10,000 metres above ground
- Moving at 900 kmh (560 mph)
- Estimated ambient temperature: -50 degrees Celsius (-58 Fahrenheit) !!!
And he made it through relatively unscathed except for severe frostbite on his hands. Hopefully the doctors can save his hands as well. Then he can take over the Die Hard franchise.
