Making an emergency landing due to hydraulic failure. Was en route Paris - Charlotte and turned back over the north of Scotland. Note the undercarraige doors are stuck down after the gear was manually lowered, and the steering was unserviceable so the aircraft was towed off the runway.

From the thumbnail I thought it was an A340, since the thrust reverser kinda makes 2 nacelles../ crappy stuff, I hope this is not a real A330 design flaw. Imagine this happened on AF flight 447...!!?!
