Flying Around an Ice Breaker

Posted on June 10, 2014 by tim


Russian blogger Sergey went on an ice breaker journey through the Arctic. He says that there is a helicopter on board the vessel. It is a Russian KA-32C copter and he took a trip on it around the ice breaking ship while deep into the ice of the Arctic. Photos are inside.

That’s Sergey on the ground.

    Russia had the first nuclear-powered icebreaker with the “Lenin” in 1959.

      russia is the only country in the world to have nuclear icebreakers, no other country has ever had them nor will.

    I would think they must always leave the ship engines running. cold engine with cold thick oil would not start if it did have to shut down for whatever reason.

      Ummm….. nuclear.
      Generates it’s own heat, that’s the whole process of “nuclear”.
      Their problem is they can generate TOO much heat.
