An emergency landing due to hydraulic failure. The gear doors are stuck down and the fast landing coupled with no nosewheel steering meant the runway was blocked for some time. The aircraft stopped safely but had very hot brakes and a couple of burst tyres.

Great shot. Right in the middle of the action and the lighting is superb.

Great work by the pilots... a safe landing after losing the heart of an airplane- THE HYDRAULICS.

Very spectacular picture! It looks really fast! Very challenging for the crew. At these moments you really need spoilers and reversers. And the aircraft to sit down and stay put. Five stars!
