I think it was interesting to see it land nose gear first..!! I had to watch it three times to confirm it. How much would the pilots feel in the controls with a landing like that..??

I can confirm nose first. However, it looks like the right main gear hits a fraction of a second later with the left main a second after that. Almost like a cross wind landing except, he got the nose down a little early.

probably a little vibration through the rudder pedals is all

Looked at another video of Turbo Supper Guppy landing. That one also looked like nose gear first, though gently. Perhaps this plane just needs to come in slightly nose low.
The Chicago Balckhawks have recently chartered that aircraft as well...
Wheelbarrow landing - One would think that NASA crews could do better than that.
Could be the flight characteristics don't encourage a full flare, maybe a total loss of elevator control at low speeds, but nose first? Maybe what you saw was the same pilot - can't be very many of them.

Cool photos, light and perspective. Landed tight and didn't have to brake or reverse much. Maybe he was trying for a short roll or had a load.
