A former Russian model who was killed along with her husband in the Ethiopian Airlines disaster shot a haunting video moments before the tragic couple boarded their doomed flight.

The video — captioned “1.5 hour transfer and we are flying to Kenya” — shows Muscovites Ekaterina Polyakova, 28, and her husband, Alexander Polyakov, also 28, as they embark on their ill-fated journey, according to the UK’s Metro.

The article goes on to state the following:

“So we finally got to the summer. Hi to all winter people. We’re sending you the sun, the sun of Asia, there, to the Russian winter. Cooold… Aaaa!” says Polyakova, who had worked as a model in her native Taganrog before moving to the Russian capital.

Her husband, a former Russian marine and a seasoned traveler, appears apprehensive as he sits on a bus taking them to the Boeing 737 MAX 8 at the Addis Ababa airport shortly before it took off for Nairobi.

Six minutes after takeoff Sunday, the plane crashed, killing all 157 people aboard, including the couple, both of whom worked for Russia’s Sberbank.
