Friday, November 19th, an Algerian Air Force C-130 Hercules (7T-WHA) made a full unexpected 360° turn during landing on runway 27 at Paris Le Bourget airport in wet conditions. No casualties have been reported but the aircraft is severely damaged. The cause is still unconfirmed, local sources said it was probably a hydraulic failure.

It's a C-130, throw a few rolls of speed tape on her and she'll be fine.

I am not so sure. That one doesn't look like it will be going anywhere, any time soon.
