Does the fact that the bogeys on a 767 tilt forward as opposed to being straight or tilting back, make for a rougher landing or does it really make a difference?

There was a thread just days ago about the tilt.
It's mainly due to store the gear in the fuselage.

Nudelhirsch:
I agree, this topic has been pummeled to death in the past, but there has not been extensive or specific discussion about how the landings feel.

RB211, you might want to do a search just to be sure. I have heard from some people that the forward-tilting bogies make a "squeaker" almost impossible, but many pilots are not interested in the smoothest landing possible when flying, especially on short runways or in inclement weather conditions. I have also heard the subject argued the other way, that it makes for a smoother landing. I for one believe that it makes little or no difference as far as the smoothness of the landing, but some others may argue otherwise. Maybe some 767 pilots could offer some insight. Cheers!

B-52s don't take off. They scare the ground away.

I would suggest that 767 landings have more to do with the supercritical wing design and less to do with the undercarriage. With such an efficient wing the transition from air to ground requires great finesse.

It is an aircraft that requires being flown onto the ground, not put in the right position and allowed to land like a 747. The rate at which you fly it onto the ground is how the passengers perceive the landing! I have achieved some greasers and some shockers, as have all our crews, Captain or F/O, and you can never be really sure how it's going to be until you've landed (I've stupidly had the thought 'this one's going to be ok' in the flare, then THUMP!).

That being said I'm sure that if the aircraft was fitted with huge 777 style tilting bogies it might help to cushion some of the harder landings, that last few feet where the wings no longer want to fly!

Cheers.
