"departed for its next sector without further problems.."

Why "wow"?

Hard surface, it ran twenty feet into some long grass. What's the matter?
No damage done.

Its not some prissy Western piece of delicate porcelain, it's an An26, a Russian utlity aircraft and a tough one at that. That's what they're built for. That's what they do.

I can't believe that there are still people around the globe, who didn't see this video yet....this is what Antonov's (and Russian aircraft) are generally designed to withstand..... so now, what was the question about the next flight after a little excursion into the grass?
