Reminds me of the guy who was doing aerobatics over a Frontier A320 on final to KLAS a couple years back. I don't believe they ever caught the idiot either.

There's noise all over the train and in the sky, unfortunately. As Charles mentioned, it's also leaning noticeably to the right (the poles may lean, but the building/chimney and the train don't).
