[Canon 7D + Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 L IS USM] On September 26, 2012, this TAM A330-200 made a tower fly-by on Runway 22R, following a go-around on Runway 22L. The tower confirmed that the nose gear was stuck perpendicular to the plane, and the A330 set up for an approach to Runway 31L, with emergency vehicles standing by. As the main gear touched, the nose gear moved back to its normal position, and the aircraft rolled out safely.
