    Lot to consider but one thing that is seldom talked about is NOT trying to get back on the runway or stop, just let it roll and brake easy!! I have run off the runway multiple times it is not a big deal. Just get control of the aircraft and slow to taxi back on or over to taxi way. I have seen several aircraft on the nose or flipped on a perfect smooth midfield because the pilot panicked and locked the brakes after leaving the runway. I suspect that a gusty crosswind was present the way the tail was pushed over and the wing lifted very fast. Need the rest of the story. DENNY

    Yea, I would like to see a larger version of this video and more of the story as well. I kept watching what I could see of the elevator.

    That plane had a lot of remaining energy to get back into the air. It almost looks like a faked model. I didn't see much tree movement from wind, it did look like the elevator did move some.
