Rough landing: ‘I remember just thinking, this is it,’ passenger says
CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- For a minute, Christine Malloy was very worried. As a frequent flier, she was used to rough landings once in a while. But Malloy could tell this landing was different. "Within seconds, the plane dropped to the ground," she said Wednesday. "And it dropped really hard." Malloy was one of 159 passengers and crew aboard American Airlines/US Airways Flight 1851 flying Saturday from Atlanta to North Carolina's Charlotte Douglas International Airport.
