Many years ago I landed at Midway airport, which , as those of you who have been there know, has very short runways. After a smooth flight and approach we were coasting along over the runway when it became apparent that we had too much lift and were going long... The Captain dumped the plane down roughly and we came to an abrupt halt. Shortly thereafter the Captain came on the intercom and using a perfect John Wayne imitation...he said:
"Pilgrims, I want to tell ya that what you just experienced was a perfect landing timed and conducted to the inch. Unfortunately......... The Runway was 15 feet too low."
