Hey folks.
been reading Airliner world (march i beleive- the one with AC 77W on the front) and was reading the news at the beggining and there is a photo of i beleive an AI A320 in special HIV/AIDS colours i think on page 33.
As i looked at the photo and i wish i have a scanner but the back wheels are all wrong!
the A320 is suppose to have single bogeys if I am correct on the main undercarrage but the photo shows that or double bogies! (IE two sets of wheels, one behind the other) like a 757!
Is this just my copy and a miss print or is something odd about that photo.......

There is nothing wrong with the pic, AFAIK they are the only airline to operate to operate the A320 with the double boggey with I think is for rough runways. Don't no if all that is right but somebody will correct it.

Wow that sure looks strange!

Are there any other jets that have mods like that you never see? It would be cool to se a 737 like that though they can operate fin on rough stuff as they are. -200s at least.

Cool

As long as the number of take-offs equals the number of landings...you're doing fine.

That is all correct. And I also believe Indian Airlines is the only one to operate that. As for the 737, I assume it's too low to operate on rough strips in the first place. Maybe if they gave it a lift-kit :P

Some 737's are fitted with gravel kits which repel the gravel away from the nose gear and engines when landing on rough, underdevloped runways.

Anyways, I have actually flown on the plane in that picture.

They were the only carrier to order this option. Their original aircraft were were ordered with this option but they have since taken delivery of used ones with the single wheel bogie.
