Emirates A380 falls on nose

Yesterday an A380 owned by Emirates was substantially damaged after the nose gear retracted on accident. Poor A380.

Yala yala😂😂

How would the pilots not recognise the gear is retracted? Or were the sensors not working?

It’s not the nose gear that retracted accidentally. The aircraft did fall of the jacks during maintenance as written in the second sentence of the source you provided.

That’s how it looks like when it’s installed. They do that to test the gear.
