They cherry picker they are referring to is a machine or vehicle to allow people to reach the higher parts of the airplane. Much like workers on telephone poles, power lines, tree tops etc...

I have a friend that used to work in HP maintenance and is friends with both mechanics that were injured. it was a clear case of miscommunication. One thought the gear pins were installed, and they werent. Up came the nose gear, down went the plane.
