It seems like the main gear is in a slightly odd configuration, with the front wheels on the bogie hanging lower than the rear ones. I would have thought that the configuration as seen on a 777 would make more sense:

The 767 is like that so the gears can fit into the plane when retracted. Same goes with the A340-500/600, A380. I'm sure other aircraft have that reason as well.

Does anyone know when NWA is going to retire the DC-9? Lol!

Welcome to Airliners, you can use the search feature for this frequent question.

But the answer is for retraction into the wheel wells.

If you do a search on "767 gear" in the Tech/Ops forum you will find a recent thread on this topic. It had 44 responses that should answer your question. However, I am sure some else will answer your question in this thread.

Thanks guys, I did do a search (after a long time reading posts on a.net before joining I'd know I ought to search first) but maybe I wasn't thorough enough. Cheers anyway!
