Video is shot at Amsterdam Schiphol and if you have ever been there you should no that some parts of the airport are not fenced of. Because the airport perimeter is separated by canals.

This landing has been captured by several aircraft spotters, and apart from these two videos I have seen several photos of the event. So, yes, this was real and people who believe otherwise are either overcritical or easily fooled.

The upside of this is that the era of every small aviation mishap being posted on social media is quickly coming to an end, since we can now easily dismiss it as "nothing to see here, it's just FS2020".

Looks like a crosswind landing that ended up with a bit too much pushing and pulling. May have been a gust in the initial flare. The pitch is about 7 or 8 degrees nose up during the float. 5 or less is normal. Probably got a call from FOQA afterwards and a bit of extra go around training.

Most likely the same level of evidence as your statement comparing their knowledge.
