I can't resist.
I'm on a Continental Express Jet Flight (yes, the day after that accident). We are landing in a nasty crosswind. Just as the wheels are about to touch down a gust hits us, the wing dips slightly, we correct, get a little off center, touch down, straighten out, and taxi down the runway....
...when we pull up to the gate the Pilot comes on the PA and says, "...on your way off the plane tonight, please stick your head into the cockpit and give John a nice congratulations on a very tricky landing...".
No, I'm not making that up.
Yes, I did congratulate him.
No, they didn't give me the little wings that you pin on your shirt. Darn it.
