That 747 was scheduled for Anchorage. Due to the non-retracted nose landing gear, the pilots were forced to return to Frankfurt. In a assigned airspace over Giessen, the crew dumped fuel to reach the maximum landing weight. Sorry for the low quality of the photo.

It's always great to see photos in great quality but it isn't most important. The "subject" of the photo is always most important! :)
