Interesting MegaWhacker news from Japan: an All Nippon Airways megawhacker made the news this morning with a nosewheelless emergency landing in Kochi, Japan. Video can be seen here. The forward bottom fuselage held up pretty well and the pilots didn't seem to have any problem with directional control. The Megawhacker has been plagued with landing gear problems since pretty much day one, although as far as I know none of ours have landed without all three down and locked. The Flightinfo rumor is that ANA has grounded their MegaWhacker fleet for now, although I can't find anything to support that.
