Beware! Wet Cement..

Row as passenger jet ‘lands in wet concrete’

Kiev A passenger jet taxied into wet concrete after landing in Zaporizhia, Ukraine, according to Ukraine International Airlines, which accused the airport of failing to warn it of the hazard. It said that no one was hurt but the plane was badly damaged and passengers had to be switched to alternative transport. The airport denied that the incident had happened. (Reuters)

My first thought was they'd just done a leg from Bejing...
