NEED INFO ON MAGADAN PLEASE ANY FLIGHTS OUT OR INTO THE PLACE.
More interested in electrical gadgets? Us? And YOU'RE the one complaining, after ONE hour, because no one has answered a question about something as extraordinary as flight and freight information out of Magadan??! It sounds to me like your expectations are completely in sync with the "Have mobile phone, have internet, have email, have SMS, have landline, have fax, HAVE TO HAVE INFORMATION NOW" society that so many live in! http://www.horizonsunlimited.com/hub...ies/smile3.gif


Patience man, patience!

Kind regards
