"Videos online show the A330 taxiing on the runway without its nose landing gear deployed"

If it takes full power to taxi after landing, you may have missed a checklist item.

I had the same thought. Cmon media!

My sentiments the same. 'Quality Journalism' these days might as well be categorized alongside the terms 'time management' and 'marital bliss'.

Here is the AVHerald take on the incident.

I'd sure like to see the video of it 'taxiing' without the nosegear. Maybe it was landing rather than a taxi

A Hydraulic System failed.... What happened to Alternate Extension?

My thoughts indeed. Even gravity would have dropped the gear if the doors were open I would have thought.

Maybe the doors didn't open.

There has to be more to this than meets the eye.... Somebody ain't tell'n us the entire story! A Single HYD failure, causes a nose gear not to come down... Having an alternate extension method is required on ALL A/C. If they could not get the nose gear down then there was more than a simple hydraulic system failure!
