This is the worst flight I've ever been on

Kids: don't fly on Tu-154s. The one depicted in the video below was on a shakedown flight after years of storage... and just after takeoff, the control surfaces became, well, uncontrollable. The fun starts about 50 seconds in...

A plane with a bad attitude.

On the bright side, though, that was some stellar piloting to bring the plane back down in one piece. How do you say "the right stuff" in Russian?
