most airliners will only turn about 70 from the flight deck. sometimes, that angle can be greatly exceeded when on the ground. more often though, it's limited to 90* by carriers. i do know that on the DHC-8 and the EMB-145 the nosegear can be turned more than 90* without damage. the CRJ-200 is nice because all you have to do is remove the pins holding the gear assembly to the strut and you can spin her all the way around... just don't forget to put the pin back in..
