I was actually thinking more of the old Pink Panther movie where the guy shoots off his nose because he thought he was using the gun-shaped lighter instead of the actual gun.

That picture gets passed around a lot. I actually do recall reading something that was supposed to be the original story. It went something like the cowling just fell off (the engine was fine) and the real danger was possible damage to the horizontal stabilizers, though there was none. Basically, it's not a sight anyone would want to see out of their window seat, but it's not an extremely serious failure either.

It looks like an early-gen 737 to me.

Here's another thing you never want to see from a window seat:

It is actually a knotted rope (so you don't slide to fast, and you can also climb back in, if being outsice appears to be more of a risk). On the 744 they have also electric "ropes", which you can hang on while you are being slowly lowered to earth.

Another, "Just How Did That Happen?????" Picture :P

Edit: Did a bit of research, the plane is a 747-400 (As you probably know) registered B-16462. The accident was at London Heathrow.

Hmm I have seen nose gear failures before, slightly strange phenomenon, I guess they have to cope with more stress than the shared weight of the main gears, and don't seem to happen with passengers in. I guess during loading, the PAX baggage could have been put in the front holds before the back, and therefore made the weight unstable, but who knows.

Generally they don't get written off and are able to re-enter service, thankfully.
