Haha!  I've never seen a funny airplane accident until now.  Except I'm not sure a wind gust did that.  Doesn't look or sound windy out.  It does seem that they might have been going awefully fast.  Also looked like the were getting near the end of the runway (TDZ markers visible).  I think the ARFF guys in fire suits may have been a bit much.  Must have been bored.
