I actually watched it live in our Ops Center -- we have CNN, MSNBC and FOX News tuned in 24x7. I knew it was a slow news day when all three networks carried that landing live.

Probably a combo of dumping fuel, and the pilot setting the thing down gently enough that it didn't rupture the fuel tank(s). I saw them spray foam on it afterwards as a precaution.

Give it a bit, one of the local news stations had a chopper in the air, so they probably filmed it. From what I heard, it was loaded with executives from NIKE, the sporting goods/sneaker company.
