The aircraft made a landing on the runway at Misawa AB with no nose gear when the nose strut refused to extend on approach. The pilot landed it perfectly on the main gear and touched it down on the ECM pod. The pod saved the aircraft form exstensive frame damage and also saved the HTS pod from being wrecked. The cause was found to be a misinstalled torque link pin from that mornings tow out of the HAS. The strut extended on takeoff and it became jammed in the nose well keeping the nose gear from extending.
