Last Sunday (13 Jun) I was on DL1846 (LGA/BOS Shuttle). As we passed over PVD and prepared for landing, I noticed the plane's attitude changed several times from nose-up about 5 degrees to nose down 5 degrees. Had me stumped. I've flown the shuttle many times before, and this had never happened before. As we landed at BOS, I noticed our speed was very fast. Seemed like the reverse-thrusters were on forever. Of course, I forgot to ask about the strange flight afterwards. Any speculation? I think maybe the flaps or slats were malfunctioning. Any other guesses?
