Fit of Pique: 12-Aug-2000. ATC cleared N805AS flight to land on runway 26 while airport personnel were exercising on runway 26. Tower controller was not aware of situation. Personnel moved from runway while the aircraft landed and taxied for parking. After landing the Pilot in Charge approached the individuals being on the runway. They ignored him. Pilot in charge returned to dispatch and refused to fly anymore flights. (Possibly the Samoan rugby team so I don’t blame him).
