Not bad. What if there wasn't enough runway? JATO?

Or a new wing on the Officer's Club?

JATO requires mounting hardware. They'd have probably had to have scrapped it in place.

OK how did he get it stopped when he landed the night before?
It not only sounded like it was much heavier loaded than takeoff weight but he was not expecting a short runway. So everything had to go just right just to land. Sounds like one lucky pilot and a whole bunch of lucky passengers.
