Well i can tell you that the pilot did the right thing (Go-Around) instead of trying to save the landing, putting all of you lives in the balance...
Example:

looks like a Boeing 747SP
can't tell if he just over ran or biffed a landing?

Your first hand experience sounds like hell on earth (terror from below).

"The NTSB released their final report concluding the probable cause of the accident was:

the captain’s inappropriate control inputs following a firm landing, resulting in two hard nose-gear impacts before executing a go-around.

Contributing to the inappropriate control inputs was the captain’s fatigue and physical discomfort; and a possible lack of practical consolidation of skills and experience due to a protracted and fragmented training period."

Wow.  Thanks for the follow-up here.  Sorry to hear that so many John Q's were gagged until this release.

Finally some insight... guess I was right on the injury, wrong on the crew member.
