An American Airlines Airbus A320-200, registration N604AW performing flight AA-1826 from Phoenix, AZ to Las Vegas, NV was on final approach when the main gear touched down, a loud bang was heard.

Ground observer Markus Mainka, taking photos of aircraft landing on runway 25L, reported that just when the aircraft touched down a loud bang was heard, the aircraft bounced, touched down a second time – without further bang.
