"Welcome to Washington DC where the local time is 2:43 PM. We ask that you stay seated while the Captain taxies what is left of our plane to the gate". The winds really picked up while this guy was on final and in the end it looked like the bottom dropped out which made for a hard landing and lots of smoke! Still a fine job of getting into to DCA though!
