An Air Transat Airbus A321-200, registration C-GEZO performing flight TS-783 from Fort Lauderdale,FL (USA) to Quebec City,QB (Canada) with 185 people on board, was accelerating for takeoff from Fort Lauderdale's runway 28L when the crew rejected takeoff at low speed (about 15 knots over ground) due to losing directional control. The crew declared Mayday but advised they did not need assistance. The crew subsequently advised they had an issue with the nose wheels and requested an inspection of the landing gear. Airport operations were called by tower to perform a runway inspection and check the nose gear of the aircraft. The crew explained their nose wheels were way off, the crew cancelled Mayday.

The Canadian TSB reported: "During take-off roll at approximately 15 kts, Flight crew rejected take off due to loss of directional control. The aircraft was brought to a full stop and flight crew declared a MAYDAY. After assessment of the situation and inspection, flight crew taxied the aircraft to the ramp."
