I had always heard rumors about rough landings in the MD-11 and had always
dismissed them until I saw the burnt wreckage of a Fedex MD-11 at Newark
some time back.  Has anybody figured out why that happened, and is there a
flaw in this aircraft?  If that was a passenger plane, there definately
would have been huge casualties.
