Nose wheel problem

Here’s the text to the listening from yesterday.


An Airbus A330 was approaching New York JFK airport when the captain noticed a red light on the nose landing gear. He informed the tower and asked to make a low pass for a visual inspection. After he did this, he was informed that the nose landing gear was turned at a 90 degree angle. After considering their options the pilots decided to land. 5 seconds before touchdown the nose gear of the A330 returned to its normal position and the landing was completed safely with no injuries or damage to the plane. After landing, the maintenance crew checked the nose gear for problems.
