    Seems like a lot of tires blowing lately and we are not yet into the heat of the summer. :cool:

    Probably a hard and fast landing, given the very gusty winds at DCA today. I departed there a couple of hours ago and it was pretty rough.

    We had a hard landing into Dulles today from Tokyo, hard enough to have half the bins in Business Class open.

    It has been very windy in DC today, so not surprising that there have been rough landings out there.

    They throttled back a little too early in my opinion so we dropped and hit the ground hard.
