    The pilot was coming in much too fast to land.

    I don’t understand why he didn’t throttle up after the 2nd bounce.

      No shame in a touch and go.

      It takes several seconds after throttling up to get the thrust. This isn’t a Flanker.

    That looks like an inexperienced pilot, not a combat veteran landing. The air controller shouts “parachute, parachute”. Surely you con’t need to tell that to an experienced pilot.

    Could just be a training flight.. pilot does seem under stress and not paying attention to the controller.
