I was spotting at SJC today, and saw the AA 777 to Taipai take off. As it started retracting it's wheels, I noticed they were still spinning. On planes, when the wheels get almost in or totally into the wheel well, is there something that stops them from spinning or do they just spin themselves until they stop?

On Cessna's you have to apply brakes before you put the gear into the wells, and for the nose wheel there is a pad on the inside of well that slows it down. I think airliners are pretty similar apart from I think when the pull the handle up the brakes are automatically applied for a couple seconds to stop the gear spinning. Maybe a driver could explain more.

Would that effect anything in the wheel wells?
