Hi

I was checking pictures of planes which I flew this summer.
One of them was EI-CSS.

Is this a normal turn? Or a really sharp turn?
How many degrees can you turn this nose wheel?

Thanks

Pretty far. Enough for one tyre to bend at an angle with other:

that's normal, although not the max that those wheels can turn to. most can go past the steering limit from the cockpit steering.

The maximum steering angle achieved by a Boeing 767 from the flightdeck is 65 degrees.

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..
