RUSSIAN President Vladimir Putin is reportedly planning to put on a fake beak and fly a motorised hang-glider to lead a flock of endangered young Siberian white cranes on part of their migration to Asia.

The cranes, raised in captivity, do not know how to fly south, and environmentalists have to devise an imitation lead crane to show them the way.

Putin's spokesman Dmitry Peskov told the Interfax news agency yesterday that the flight is to take place "one of these days."

The cranes were raised at the Kushevat ornithological station/sanctuary and had to be shown the route to wintering grounds. Kushevat is near the city of Salerkhard, which is located close to the Arctic circle.

After the cranes were released, however, only one of them followed the flying leader.

Putin later explained that there was a strong wind and that the machine flew so fast the birds couldn't keep up.

The second flight was more successful, with five birds in tow, although after two circles only two were able to keep pace, flying for 15 minutes.

“I liked this program,” Putin said, adding that he had become interested and bought a motorized hang glider with his own money and will later hand it over to the scientists.

“I advise everyone to try it,” he said.

Had Stalinist propaganda gone on unchecked until today,
mr Putin would have flown without that gay-ass hangglider 15.gif

But they're getting there, aren't they..?


Good to see world leaders keep their eyes on the crucial
stuff, while the world is going up in flames.

The cranes were not fooled by the white duds and beak. They were too afraid to not follow him.

I am not your carpet ride I am the sky
I am not your blowing wind, I am the lightning
