I don't think there was anyone in the plane. It just spooled up because of the water shorting stuff out.

nope, I'm thinking the pilot was trying to get it back on dry land, or at least up higher where it wouldn't be soaking/sinking as much. Probably panicking trying to cover his ass, cause he pretty much caused the problem in the first place by landing downwind.

Pilot was an asshat named Erik Larsen, who owns Weibel Scientific, which owned the plane. Apparently he is known for doing stupid shit in aircraft.

I think this is him right here, piloting au naturel. Paging Grunter!
