This video is getting plenty of attention, today.
It happened in Germany and most of the news outfits are noting that he almost landed on a sunbather.
Not mentioned is he also nearly slammed into posts at the end of the runway. Somehow, his wheels were nicely spaced and he was still high enough that it didn't clip his wings.
Now, at some point, the guy had to know he was short of the runway. I mean, how hard is this to figure out at a reasonably altitude?
None of the articles on it mentioned whether the pilot got behind the power curve, only that he "didn't see" the guy on the beach.
