  Well, actually, there's one way.  If (eg) JA was walking south, and the
plane came in from the south, heading north, then after releasing the Eva,
have it reorient before it lands, ending up hitting the ground behind JA,
and sliding backwards.  Which might actually make sense, since if 01 was
released along the same line of travel as JA, it would have to stop its
momentum in the forward direction.  Being in a human-shaped body, it's
easier to break a backward slide than a forward one, especially
considering the risk of harming Misato (ignoring the terminal velocity
bugaboo).
