Im thinking the same thing. An airplane of that size and mass can not stop that fast after a landing like that. Especially when you listen to the audio he had to have been more than 75% throttle on that. And that bounce was a little too fake looking.

I can do that on the sim...not sure if I would hold it together (mentally) if it were the real thing...

I think there is a story out there of an F-14 fullscale that lost one of its wings on a training mission, collided with another plane and made it back to base....

someone here should remember that one...

Looking at individual frames, the control positions are consistent with the flight path.
The shadows on the ground are correct.
The landing run, in grass, with brakes, would be short.
The odd focus changes which make no sense at all, any autofocus system could follow that large image easily...
The "interview" with the dude... He's just a poser.
