Breaking news from CNN. A Jet Blue Airbus A320 made an incredible landing with its nose wheel turned sideways. The crew noticed that they could not retract the nose gear and a visual check showed their predicament. After circiling and dumping fuel for two hours, the aircraft was gently eased on to the runway and came to a successful stop at Los Angeles International airport.
Further proof that professional pilots are a breed apart.
UPDATE: It appears that this is not the first time that this has happened to an A320. National Transportation Safety Board report.
