Tintin was the first thing in my mind too. It was more similar to Marsden Matting though. This steel mat was different texture.
I bet rugged Russian planes take this kind of bumpyness easily.

I can´t even imagine the vibrations an aircraft operating there could bear. Looks safe but no smooth at all. Well captured!
