In addition to the DC-10, the A340 has a center gear, and if you're riding on one, I suggest you pay attention at touchdown, because you seem to 'land'
three times: once while the outer main gear touches ground, followed by a second landing as the center main goes 'thud', followed by the nose gear -
which is short. Has anybody else noticed this? Must be frustrating for pilots wanting to make a good landing ..... they must do it three times in one go.
