THE FLT TO ATLANTIC-CITY-BADER FIELD WAS UNEVENTFUL, EXCEPT THE ACFT TOUCHED DOWN HARD DURING THE LANDING. THE PLT TAXIED TO THE TERMINAL & PARKED WITH THE EXIT DOOR FACING THE TERMINAL. HE ELECTED NOT TO SHUT DOWN THE ENG SINCE HE INTENDED TO IMMEDIATELY TAKEOFF AGAIN. THE PLT TOLD THE PASSENGERS TO DEPLANE THRU THE REAR DOOR & GO DIRECTLY TO THE TERMINAL, EXCEPT HE ASKED 1 PASSENGER (HIS FUTURE FATHER-IN-LAW, A PREVIOUS MILITARY AVIATOR) TO CIRCLE AROUND IN FRONT OF THE ACFT TO LOOK AT THE LANDING GEAR. DUE TO THE HARD LANDING, THE PLT WANTED HIM TO MAKE SURE THE GEAR WERE STRAIGHT UP & DOWN. THE PLT CAUTIONED THE PASSENGER TO STAY WELL CLEAR OF THE PROP, AT LEAST 25 FT. THE PASSENGER CIRCLED IN FRONT, CHECKED THE GEAR, THEN WALKED TO WAVE HIM BACK, BUT TO NO AVAIL. AFTER A HANDSHAKE (THRU THESMALL PLT'S WINDOW) THE PASSENGER TURNED & WALKED INTO THE PROP.
