Crazy Landing: AA1876 (B763), LAX-PHL

AA1876 (B763) landing this morning around 6:30AM in PHL (from LAX) - very crazy. I felt like the plane rocked back and forth, like the rear wheels hit and bounced, then the front wheel hit and bounced, then again, and again. Hard to tell exactly what happened and I'm sure my memory is fuzzy as it was all pretty quick, but I did say to my seatmate "Never felt anything like that before" and he said "Yeah."

No harm done in the end though. But kinda scary.

Add hard braking to that and it's a normal landing at BUR.

Extremely windy/gusty day at PHL yesterday. Not surprised to see a few bounces.
