A B-25 belonging to Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum at YHM landed safely after a nose gear problem just now.

The crew had to deal with a nose gear that had not retracted and was 20 degrees off the the right.

They did several fly-overs above the museum and you could clearly see that the nose gear was not straight. Pretty scary situation.

The crew then did a masterful job of correcting it by performing a touch-and-go during which the nose gear straightened out and they then did a full stop. 6 souls were onboard.

Kudos to the pilot for a job well done.

A coworker took a photo of the overfly. Hopefully he'll be able to upload to show everyone.

Taken from a mile away. Grainy, but you can see the nose is off.

Sounds like a great job in saving, not only those aboard, but a valuable and historic airplane.

Wow, I saw that plane flying that day, from onboard a train coasting through the outskirts of Hamilton. Gear was up when I saw it IIRC.
