Did they have enough runway left or did they go around?

Very picky armchair piloting here, but isn't the first rule of flying to "look out the window".

Surely it's on the pilot to go around if there's people and equipment on the runway when you're on short final!?!?

Is it just me or did not seem to be at all concerned about the plane that’s about to land on top of them? It almost seemed like they were expecting it.

Didn't senator Jim Inhofe do something similar a few years ago? But he did it on purpose.

My first question would be how did these guys know to have a camera ready that this was going to happen ?
the truth does matter, guys. too bad it's often quite subjective. the truth is beyond the mere facts and figures. it's beyond good and bad, right and wrong...

The workers didn't seem all that panicked, as if it was a normal or expected occurrence.

Workers have no fears. Careless near death. Crazy! What if CEO or VIP on board see out of window cabin to see truck whoooshing close call! CEO or VIP would be yelling at pilots! WHAT ARE YOU TRYING TO KILL MY LIFE to crash on landing huh? Pilots will be laughing or smiling at him. LOL!

Not sure that I get the joke.

Unless there is something else going on, then the Pilots have some explaining to do.
