These two reports cover the harrowing Piedmont Airlines 737 flight where the left main gear became stuck and some amazing flying took place. Watch the pilot bounce the plane down the runway trying to free it! Amazing. vintage '80s. Make sure you check out the footage at the 2m10s mark - the pilot earns his entire years pay in those 20 seconds! I think this is one of the scariest landings I have ever seen... up there with the New York Hudson River crash when it comes to pilot skill.
In an interview after the landing, the pilot said he turned off the anti lock brake system so he could "blow" the tires on the right side main gear to help increase drag, to assist keeping the plane travelling straight after the left side engine made ground contact.
