Oh, yeah. Once I was cleared to land, and just after I touched down, I met an MD-80 taking off in the opposite direction. 😳

i was on final to sfo, and right as I'm cleared to land, this stupid MD80 SOB sweeps right in front of me, cuts me off, and then gets clearance to land, and supposed to follow me on final...weird.
