Sensationalism...given the mismatch between the A380 in the picture and 777 in the text...all it really needs is a few words from a Guardian reporter about plunging and narrowly avoiding the immigrant orphanage run by nuns...

looks like an emergency to me trying to land with a pushback tug attached to it.

I do like the term 'technical issue, in this case its probable fine maybe a hydraulic problem given it needs to be towed but BA media comms used the term technical issue for the Las Vegas incident which is just a tad more than a technical issue with flames, huge billowing columns of smoke and a write off airframe.
