'They slammed the brakes so hard my daughter hit the seat'

Passengers on-board a Qantas flight that had just landed in Perth were left bruised but grateful to be alive after their plane came seconds away from crashing into another flight.

One must accept LAHS clearance with caution. In most cases you are only saving a minute or two. Is this really worth the risk unless landing at a busy field?
