While we all hate delays on planes, sometimes we have to accept that the runway isn't suitable for takeoff.

Or we could have a pilot like this guy that just takes off whenever he feels like it. It seems this was caused by either big balls or stupidity... or possibly a combination of the two.

This video from Russia (surprise, surprise) shows an Antonov An-24 taking off from an airfield that appears to double as a swamp, or possibly a bog. What we're saying is, it isn't paved at all.

Was he supposed to take off from here? Was it a dare? Why did he think this is a good idea? We have answers to precisely none of these questions.
