With yesterday's winds, I wouldn't be surprised if the engine noise or anything that the pax said about "landing hot" was actually due to correction for windshear.
I got up close and personal to the recovery efforts last night (or as close as you can get these days.) I waited for almost two hours out in the cold (yes, I froze the top layer off my face before I got back in the car.) It looked like the crew was trying to make some repairs right there with the plane in a sling. Unfortunately I couldn't stay long enough to watch the final removal.
The airport was operating about 1/2 - 3/4 hours behind schedule at 9:00 PM, and they were using Runway 6C/24C even though ATIS said it was closed.
PS -- I earned the respect of two local TV cameramen -- one from Channel 3 and one from Channel 5 -- for being so die-hard as to stand out there in the cold. Plus I gave them a lot of information about the EMBRAER itself.
