How did they removed it form the runway?
with oo-djn this week they installed a airbag just behind the nose gear to extend the nose gear again.
but in this case it doesnt look that easy....

Many larger airports do have a special equipment for this matter or have contracts with companies to provide such equipment within a certain period. In some countries, the airports bought this equipment together and share it.

Airbags, cranes and flat trucks are essential.
