Not being familiar with the Video System or PLAT system (because only experience was on the 'rock 'n roll carrier' above with no such devices) I found this comments info (where the video was found initially) interesting Sludge:http://www.neptunuslex.com/2011/09/28/darwin-runner-ups/#comments

Probably wasn’t their fault at all to be honest. It was a foul deck at the start of the clip, my guess is it was still foul from the previous trap as the cam shifted from the wires to the plat. Because it was foul, they probably got clearance to cross knowing they didnt have time to catch the jet in the groove. I wonder why paddles didnt get rid of the jet sooner if it indeed was a foul deck and not foul because of the new ‘spectators’.

Yeah, you’re right. That was a late wave-off. Can’t know what paddles was waiting for.
Still, that “head on a swivel” thing applies.

On MOVLAS too. Paddles brain was busy.
Daryle, no reprimand for pilot, he (she?) ain’t responsible for checking the deck, an if he was doing it right, probably never saw them…
Now a deck spotter like me…"
Still as someone else comments a simple 'LOOK LEFT, LOOK RIGHT and LOOK LEFT again would have been sensible. I would not fancy having an inverted mohawk haircut via the hook.
