Not sure if this qualifies, but didn't Boeing test a 707 (albiet with over sized tires) in a muddy field that could barely hold the weight of a passenger car?

How about the TACA B737 that landed on the levee outside of New Orleans
some years ago.
That was a grass runway. They had to strip the interior completely to
be able to fly it out.

If desert grass, ie dirt counts then this would take the cake. QF sent a 742 back to the QF mueum in Longreach Queensland.

Isn't the C-17 capable of unimproved field ops? I don't know if this means grass, though. I don't think grass will hold alot of weight....
|Quoting DHHornet (Reply 37):|
A bit vague, but this subject sparked my memory. A good story if true?
Anyone know anything about a Bizjet (Gulf 2?) landing on the grass in a emergency at a racecourse (in Ireland?). They built a long tarmac car park so it could depart.
