Maybe he was told to GA at that stage, otherwise it does look a little non-sensical.

under certain wind conditions the jetblast of a just departed heavy can be pretty nasty in flare to a smaller type aircraft.

Pretty normal spacing for Gatwick and Heathrow I would say

The heavies wake turbulence doesn't start until liftoff. By GA the next jet exposed himself to a possible wake event not to mention he has some very close spacing to the departing jet for ATC to handle (tower or departure).
Once I see the nose rotating of the aircraft ahead, he is committed to Take off and I can land. Until then I am loaded for the GA.
Close but nothing to unusual.

I donít think itís close at all. It looks close because the camera position and relative size difference of the B777 and B737. I think the landing B737 could easily have landed.

Perfectly standard at many busy airports, especially single runway operation. If anything, I'm surprised they made the decision to GA. They could in fact have landed without a problem. My bet is that they were "instructed" to GA by ATC and at that point they had to comply (because they are not to know if there's another unseen reason that ATC are giving them a GA instruction).

You really can’t tell from this video due to perspective distortion and compression. He could be at 200ft DA for all we know.

To be honest, the jet exhaust disturbance immediately behind a 777 would make me think twice about landing so soon. Good call to turn right ASAP from the GA aircraft.

Wake turbulence starts at rotation. Turbulence from jet exhaust starts at throttle up.

The 777 was well into the air before the 737 would have touchdown.

I guess the 737 crew is paid by the minute and they were low on time for the month?

Itís close but as said above, the camera makes it look waaay too close as the whole depth of field is in focus.

Same principle as here.
