Is it me or does that video seem as if it were being played back a little fast?
The oscillations look fast ... especially the rudder swinging back and fourth like it is. Rudders can't take rapid back and fourth movements like that ... they break off. Additionally, the aircraft looks like it has a really high ground speed.
Anyone else think the video has been sped up for the drama?

I was in an aborted United 757 landing just like that in Portland a number of years ago. We hit the ground very fast, bounced, and as the left wing went down, the pilot gunned the engines and we lifted up again. After a few minutes the pilot explained what had happened and he even sounded a bit shaken. When we came in for a second attempt, it was very nerve wracking. The pilot brought the plane in very fast the second time.

Yeah, my dad is coming home tomorrow from OKC. Hope nothing like that happened. I heard gusts to 90 is to be expected overnight tonight and into tomorrow. Man, and I thought my C182 22 knot X-Wind landing at SHN was bad!
