No bounce at this end. You message landed with a solid thud. But, not to waste a perfectly good email:
Many years ago at an international airport, I was in an airplane behind a British Airways airliner. We were both waiting for an airliner from another country to land before we were to depart.
The other plane came in, hit solidly on the painted numbers at the end of the runway, and bounced several feet back up into the air. The second time he hit the runway it was nearly as hard, and he bounced again. The third time, with some wing wobbling, the plane finally settled down and the pilot slowed to safely taxi off the runway.
Before the tower could clear the next plane for takeoff, a distinctly British voice came on the air and said, "Well, that's one way of doing it."
