A holiday story

An experienced airline pilot, accross the pond, once wrote that on a particular internal flight he had hammered his aircraft somewhat into the runway really hard; due to high cross winds. No damage was done but the passengers were somewhat shaken, if not stirred.
.
The airline had a policy which required the first officer to stand at the door while the passengers exited, smile, and bid them fairwell with the comment: "Thanks for flying on our airline." He said that, in light of his bad landing, he had a hard time looking the passengers in the eye, thinking that someone would have a smart comment. Finally, everyone had got off without making any adverse comment except for a little old lady walking with a stick.
.
As she disembarked she said, "Sir, do you mind if I ask you a question?" "Why, no, Ma'am," said the pilot. "What is it?" The little old lady said, "Did we land, or were we shot down?"
