In 2013, Ethiopian Airways Boeing 767 flight ET815 flying from Addis Ababa to Kilimanjaro airport was unable to land at its scheduled destination due to a light aircraft disabled on the runway. Instead it was forced to land at Arusha on a runway that was only 1620 metres long. The nosewheel ran off the runway on landing, but no-one was hurt. Later, there came the task of getting the big Boeing out again! This is the footage of the aircraft departing Arusha without passengers or bags. It's tight, but in the end, as the man says, easy-peasy.
