Apparently, the flash seen when the Tomcat landed was the pilot being ejected!!! Right through the canopy
One of the comment said the RIO in the back had secured a GPS unit onto a grab handle. But he didn't secured the GPS unit for the landing. So when the Tomcat landed, the sudden force from the landing dislodged the GPS unit which struck the rocket motor in the pilot's ejection seat. And since the pilot didn't initiate the ejection by grabbing the ejection handle, the canopy was still there and the pilot just shot right through it. Yikes.

So after the Tomcat came to a halt, I'm guessing the arresting wire was the only thing holding the aircraft in place while the RIO was just sitting there with the engines running. And I think I saw one of the deck crews run over and place a wheel chock to make sure the aircraft doesn't start rolling. I'm sure the first thing to do was to shut down the engines. Can the RIO do that? Or is there some sort of master switch mounted on the outside of the aircraft where a ground crew member could easily shut the whole thing down during an emergency?
