Impressive! First time I've seen a handbrake turn by an airliner. If they practice they might be able to drift it.

Yes, even the unbraked nose wheels can contribute to the braking effort.

S7 Airlines Airbus A320 makes a nice pirouette at icy Novosibirsk, Tolmachevo airport

A video of a security camera has captured a S7 Airlines Airbus A320 having difficulties on a very icy taxiway.

The pirouette was caught on camera back in December last year but only recently gone viral on social media. The S7 Airlines aircraft nearly hit its company Boeing 767 on the right-hand side. Luckily nobody got injured. How the flight from Bejing to Novosibirsk, Tolmachevo reached its final parking position or gate is unknown.
