Yesterday at around 9:40 pm, a 747 dream lifter landed at a small Kansas airport 11 miles away from it's intended destination at McConnell AFB.
Here is the best video I've found of its takeoff:

Edit with new info.
The runway it landed on was around 6,100 feet long. A far cry from the standard 9100 foot runway required at MTOW. I still am not sure wether it was carrying parts for the Dreamliner, but it only took around 5000 feet of runway to get airborne again so I doubt it was any where near MTOW.

Jabara is a _tiny_ little civilian airstrip. I'm surprised they even got that bird in there, and I have noises whatsoever how thy can get her out.
