Nice close-up! I never paid attention to the chicken wire. Can anyone spot the passenger giving the finger? Good shot.

This photo is very sharp. So sharp you can see ice around the windows and the passengers looking out, one of them obviously doesn't like to be photographed...

The caption is incorrect. It is impossible for any 777 to deploy reversers before the main gear has compressed. Weight On Ground switches are installed to sense when this has happened and then remove a baulk that prevents use of the reverser levers on the flight deck.

The previous comment would be correct if the caption had read 'main landing gear'. Obviously it says 'nose landing gear'. Now I am not a 777 expert but I have seen 777's reversing the engines and deploying spoilers at his stage of the landing countless times, it is a totally normal, safe and effective maneuver.
