Looks like it happened over the weekend.

The caption suggests that there was a hydraulic problem which led to a landing without flaps. It looks like the fire trucks are out to make sure there are no brake fires after a faster than normal landing.

Is the aircraft back in service yet? Any damage? Would passengers have known something was different about their landing? Why didn't redundancies in the hydraulic systems prevent this?

Anybody know more?

Late reply, sorry...
What I've read (after witnessing the landing): NW041 came back with a hydraulic problem after taking off to MSP (so my comment should say 'to' iso 'from'). Flaps didn't work properly on one wing, so it had to land with no/minimum flaps. As you can see on the picture, only the slats were deployed... It landed on 27 leaving a HUGE cloud of smoke, and the passenger definitely felt that. The speed was simply much higher than a on a normal landing. So it popped 2 tyres...
After being inspected on the runway, it got pulled to the gate where people got off and they probably had a look at the hydraulic system and changed some tyres...

Thanks IL76. I thought everyone missed my question for a while there.

You'd have gotten a better response if you'd posted in Tech Ops. In civ av if no one replies in the first 25 - 30 minutes your post will scroll off the bottom of the screen, in tech ops it'll be there several days before it goes off the bottom.
