If it's a transformer, it had better start buying it's cloths at places other than Wal Mart (a cheap discount chain of stores in the US) :-D

WOW -What happened exacly? Hope they can repair it and see it flying high soon, otherwise it'll be a pitty to see such a beautiful 744F no longer on the sky. Thanks for sharing this with all of us here.

Looks like nice planning when they were designing the plane.. the #2 and 3 engines look like they were designed to just barely be above the ground in case of this. Nice pic too, not everyday that you see something like that!

Great picture of a rare event. Aircrafts with a nose wheel configuration must be designed for a possible nose gear collapse. The engines' nacelles may not touch the ground in this case (Refer to the Airworthiness Requirements, e.g. EASA CS 25) You'd amazed about how many design considerations there must be made in order to come up with a good aircraft. ;)

To the commenter from Spain, this happened in 2006, and through a little search of the plane's registration, the latest picture to come up was september 1, 2009, so it is still flying, lol

Surprising how many noticed the engines clearance. Too perfect to be coincidence. Thanks for info Netherlands. 5* for reasons mentioned by Czech Republic.
