I've been in some rough landings before, but damn.....

DALLAS (AP) — A Southwest Airlines flight attendant suffered a compression fracture to a vertebra in her upper back during a hard landing last month in California, according to federal safety investigators. 

The National Transportation Safety Board said the impact of landing was so hard that the flight attendant thought the plane had crashed. She felt pain in her back and neck and could not move, and was taken to a hospital, where she was diagnosed with the fracture.


  1. Southwest pilots have long been proud of their rough landings - must have had more than their share of Navy pilots that were accustomed to landing on flattops and the 737 can take it

  2. -700 series, the jet version of the DC-3. usually not rough in take off or landing. Now if it was an -800, yeah, those fuckers land almost flat, nose up very little, tail strikes and all

  3. I have ~thousand skydives. This poor soul does not know the meaning of hard landings.
