Very nice job by the pilots, yes. Just in case some of you are freaked out (because it's not ALL that uncommon), the nosewheel isn't the most effective thing in keeping the plane going straight until much lower speeds...and at those slower speeds, the 16 caliper brakes can overpower the nosewheel. Having it cocked 90 degrees off is better than, say, 20 degrees off. I have had a nosewheel cocked 90 degrees off before...scary experience I should say. All that happened though was the tire blew and the plane stopped going straight down the centerline of the runway.
