As a tandem videographer, what do you do here? Unsure
To me it looks like he was "helping" peel the ladies hands off the door...obviously it's not the video guys job to critique a harness job, but I would if it was THAT bad...and I'd leave my hands off the student.
Not to defend this idiot in ANY form or fashion....but.
I have had more than a few grab anything and everything when we get in the door. They're out of their element, off balance, in a harness that limits movement, and another human moving them around the whole time as well. It's quite unsettling for even the bravest of students. Usually a good "Hands on your harness!" will correct the hand positions...but not always. I have exited with a few that wouldn't stop grabbing stuff, yet you know they want to jump. "Hands off the door and we'll be fine" has worked for those.
I still say I'm not sure if she didn't WANT to exit or simply COULDN'T. She looks to have been stuck in the squat. TI is fully over her preventing it as well. Gotta love cramped aircraft sometimes.
But, again, he was clearly at fault for not fitting the harness correctly. He's very lucky she didn't come out of the harness.
Older lady needs very special care and attention... Obviously poorly fitted harness ... She baulks at door and makes situation worse... The sensible move now is to go back to a seat.... Instructor persists and follows with intentional unstable exit... READ THAT,,,intentional unstable exit...!! What a fool..!!!
