It wouldn't be the first time someone screwed up like that. Heh. Some time around 86 or 87, we had a flight of Marine A-4s coming out of Korea on a
routine transfer. One of the pilots, when he landed in Korea, suffered a nose gear failure. He was afraid it would happen again in Honolulu, so he
didn't even bother to put the gear down.
Luckily for him he had three externals on board, and slid it in on them. Very little damage to the aircraft itself, but all three tanks were sanded
flat and had the piping ripped out of them.
