In Europe and America, we kind of get very clumsy when lots of snow falls down at once. Airports cancels takeoffs and landings or even closes totally,… But at Aomori Airport snow plowing is what can be described as duty when it happens. In this Only In Japan episode, you get to know the extreme airport snow plowing personel! Read on…
ONLY in JAPAN showing Aomori Airport Snow Plowing
Nothing stops these Snow Plowing Airport Personel
Either its heavy or light snow, these pulls all of their strength doing their duty for airplanes to land or takeoff from Aomori Airport in northern part of Japan, where winter can be quite chaotic.
These working horses of people, just stand ready and plows the snow away from the runnaway in a systematic way. Nothing stands in their way really! In summer they work as rice farmers, but in winter they do all they can to protect the airport. It’s a fantastic demonstration on how people actually can work and co-operate if there is will to it.
Within 40 Minutes, they manage to clear the Snow!
In only extreme snow weather falls, Osamu Yamazaki (leader) says that they might do it in 45 or 50 minutes. But thats only if its extreme. Mostly they do plow all of the snow from the runaway in just 40 minutes. Their team is called White Impulse and they’ve got so many positive and spirited people working for them. The precise timing of snow plowing by all of the members is an art itself (just watch the video above!).
Only In Japan does fantastic work showing of Japan to the world on YouTube and this production about Aomori Airport Snow Plowing by White Impulse team is no exception. Quality YouTube production for sure!
