What's the minimum number of gear legs (out of the 4 bogies on the mains) on which a B747 can land safely?
Suppose 1 or even 2 bogey clusters do not drop into place ..... what's the procedure?
1 stuck bogey means that the Jumbo would be landing on just 12 main gear wheels, which I'm guessing is probably very possible to do.
But, with 8 wheels still tucked underneath on landing, this would cause a total gear collapse upon touchdown, would it not?
Thanks for the help with my "gear" !!
