Re: Something like landing gear testing


With all the noise I just had to go and watch that airbus land . I only live a few blocks from LAX I was hoping that the nosewheel would just toggle straight . I was amazed that the strut did not snap off.

Subject: [Q-LIST] Something like landing gear testing


The attached file is interesting because it shows crosswind landing tests
for the big airliners. When I watched it I couldn't believe that the gear
held out when I saw these tests. (Look at the angle of the airplane on the
last sequence).

After watching the landing in LA, I know these tests were not to the full
edge of what the gear can take.

I think any pilot will be amazed.
