Pause at 1:08 and you can see what looks like a guy on a motorcycle in the shade of the plane ducking down. :wub:

The telephoto lens being used makes it appear to be much closer than it really was.

A Guy pops out for a quiet smoke, then someone blows out his light - Darn those pesky water-bombers!

  Did he get a little too slow on his approach? And, is that the reason he bounced on touchdown? Rookies!

I would love to hear the media reports on this incident. Better yet, be in the managers office during the carpet dance, that he undoubtedly put on.  Lol!
