Depending on their type & approach speed, they might be landing on 10 tail-first!
Cheers,

Do that in a conventional gear for style points.

Would a tricycle be nicknamed a "nose-dragger" in this case?

With a callsign like that, you're doing touch'n'gos or low approaches and remaining in the pattern for the duration!

Also, note that Jose is right behind Irma, with Katia coming in from the opposite side of the Gulf!  :o

Likely more along the lines of "not long for this world." :-)
