Are you sure it is not the take off the pilot messed up?

The plane is going quite fast for a landing plane, and the engines seem to have very much power on them...

Hi http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

I have been thinking about take off, but whoever
posted this clip used word landing, hard to tell,
maybe pilot kicked in full power once he recognized there is not much space left and tried to take off again ? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/53.gif
Whatever reason he was very close to the beach and trees anyway.

Where's the problem? Looks like a normal landing to me. At least, it would be normal for me.

The pilot suffered a heart attack.

Because the engines were not shut down I was thinking something was wrong with pilot.

I agree - the engines were still running on the beach. One would think the pilot would have chopped throttles after the first wild skid.

Is that true ? or It's just guess ...
If true, that is really sad http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif hope he did make it.
Where is another copilot or is this just one pilot thing ? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif

There was a thread about this the other day, it was for a film or something, or someone on a film set showing off....
