Correct, LMML 14/32, however, the gear must first get into the layer of wind, which were going at pretty fast speeds! It would be like dropping a ball in a swimming pool. It needs to be very heavy in order to actually go down (yes, I know it has nothing to do with winds etc., but it's just so people can picture what I mean).

What you say makes perfect sense. So it's like the wheels just "plane" (as in aquaplane but on air) over the slipstream and does not actually penetrate it, so to speak, and therefore remains horizontal. I never thought of that.
