Tried to search in database, couldn't find - however I am sure that must have been discussed.

Surprised to view the photo - couldn't understand as what is happening there and how such smoke is coming from the landing gears in such situation - no explanation given by the photographer

Regards

It isn't coming from the nosewheel it is from the exhaust. So either he has a problem or he is making smoke by spraying diesel into the hot exhaust.

The plane behind it is doing the same thing- must be some sort of an air show performance.

Thanks, that's right - I couldn't think of exhaust or airshow performance
