Airport worker reportedly destroys a jet after being fired

Many newspapers shared this video of a “Russian airport worker destroying a jet after being fired”:

It looks like, though, that the airport where the video was shot is a scrapyard and the jet is actually being scrapped! UTair has retired its fleet of Yakovlev Yak-40s a while ago, the plane in the video appears to not have an engine on the starboard pod and doesn’t have a windshield.

Another thing that could indicate this is a video of a jet being scrapped is that nobody is stopping the airport worker and there’s people laughing in the background. The cut looks like a normal cut to detach the cockpit section of an aircraft from the rest of it.

If the video does really show what newspapers say it is, the airport worker is still damaging an aircraft that is no longer in use.
