    Actually I am aware of 737 and DC-9 operations on dirt runways and have seen pictures in flying mag!

    Hey, always enjoy your stuff!
    FWIW, the Soviet (and now Russian) Air Force routinely operate the An-124 off grass.

    Why?
    27L takoffs 27R landings is a standard config for Heathrow. The runway was back in use about 4 hours after the incident.

    Of course, the 777 ended up in much better shape than the GA twin you're specifically talking about, 3WE.

    Not quite as big as a T7 though. Until you had brought that up I had also forgotten about those airports.

    started a topic FAO Brad- Grass Runways

    FAO Brad- Grass Runways

    Ok just giving you good ole beer-drinking-frat-dorm-floor-whatever-crap.

    No anger.

    But, why did the BA 777 sink into the mud and tear off it's main gear?

    I thought there were these things called grass runways where planes could land and depart?

Working...
