Polish Su-22 emergency landing.

This happened in 1996 in Mirosławiec, Poland. The plane lost one of the wheels of main landing gear during take off. The pilot decided to try and land the aircraft so he flew for couple of minutes over the airbase in order to burn fuel. On approach the canopies were jettisoned in case if ejection was necessary (shortens the ejection time by half). The plane was landed on the grass to shorten the skid and minimize damage both to the aircraft and the runway. The aircraft was later repaired and is still operational as Su-22UM3K t/n 308.
