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."

That plane wouldn't have been Air France would it?
