Here's one link:

Scroll all the way down to the bottom; it's the 737 video mentioned. This one is different from the other one you see on the net (I'll look for it as well), and doesn't show the aircraft flying directly overhead (twice) while on short final...

Here's the other one: (Scroll down):

Southwest had a similar incident (different root cause) on an aircraft that landed in ONT back in the mid-1990s, and while there supposedly is a video of it, I've never seen it.

America West had an incident almost the same as the recent JetBlue event, from what I hear it was in CMH some years ago when CMH was still an HP hub.

Is it the USAir 737 incident you are talking about or the USAir MD-80/DC-9 (forgot which one it was) incident in CLT? The MD-80/DC-9 one isn't as publicized as the 737 one but I do remember it making the emergency landing at CLT.
