I have difficulty believing that this is authentic. First off, the defunct control tower at the beginning is unconvincing, nothing is turned on.
Although I am not familiar with Russian ATC, Yakutsk Airport control tower is located at 62 05’10.52”N 129 45”01.97”E
And there is no runway access or taxi way directly in front of the tower, the tower lays at an angle to the tarmac, taxi way and runways. Secondly,
the “radar” displays two commercial aircraft. Designated AFL825 and AFL943, which belong to Fonnafly out of Norway. They fly float planes for
tourists from April to December in Norway. Why they would be flying over 1200 miles off course, and inside Russian airspace is a mystery to me.
Thirdly, the target flies directly along a radial .05 degrees, just north of Khandyga (XaHAblrA). Khandyga (XaHAblrA) is approximately 200 miles ENE
of Yakutsk (RKYTCK). It then turns north towards Batagay (GATArAN), which is about 350 miles north. At this point, it cross paths with AFL825 at
radial 040, and turns south at 030 radial, back towards Yakutsk Airport.
I’m thrown off with why Fonnafly (AFL) would be flying in Russian airspace, and the beginning video, of the closed down control tower.
