    The landing was the easy part, taking back off in 3000ft, not so much. Lucky the runway didn't buckle with the weight that thing holds. I saw this fly over when this happened and I thought were in the hell is he going??

    Defuel to minimum takeoff load (may req waiver), hold brake, throttle up, release brake, ground speed then pull up...no problem.

    They weren't talking to that tower, I'm sure they were talking to MacDill tower and had clearance to land. The Peter O Knight tower guys probably didn't even know what was going on fast enough to get a call out over guard.

    I'm obviously a civilian when it comes to all this, but what's impressive to me, is that thing stopping on a dime.

    Pilots will probably be DNFd (do not fly) and sent to some sort of training followed by days of safety briefings....
