This is a Russian tourist plane. It reached Pole in 2002, and is still here, because it wouldn't restart once the engines were shut off. (The passengers and crew were flown out on Hercs, at their expense.) A couple of Russian engineers arrived this season (2004) to check it out, and next year it will leave Pole, if all goes well.
