Flanked by fire trucks, this Dash 8 declared a full emergency after the nose-gear failed to lower. After a fly-by of the tower for visual confirmation, the aircraft executed a very long go-around before finally making its emergency landing, which was without incident. Notice the idle nose-gear doors and the spoilers still deployed. (Canon EOS 30D & EF70-200 F4 L)

Nice picture Karl, but just FYI, the Dash 8 does not have the ability to dump fuel, maybe you'll correct that in the remark :-)
