Interflug IL-62 lands on field

DDR-SEG featured on the cover of an October 1985 Interflug publication

Perhaps it's because I'm a fan of Soviet aircraft, but I couldn't resist posting about these videos that I came across recently, which show an Ilyushin IL-62 from the now-defunct East German airline Interflug landing on a field. Apparently the story goes like this: On October 23, 1989, aircraft DDR-SEG was landed (intentionally) on a 900-meter grass runway at the Stölln-Rhinow airfield, north-west of Berlin. The aircraft was put on display and can still be viewed today (there's a museum there). It's also used for weddings.
