Quiz:
1. What part of the 777 gear can turn?

2. How many degrees can it turn?

Hmm... the nose gear should definitely turn :). Maybe at 90 Degrees, which would allow maximum maneuvrability for such a long plane.

Not only the nose wheels turns, but as well as the main gears, but only the last pair.

this is the arrangement for the 777's main gears: 2-2-2, and the last pair can turn to help the 777's ground manvourability.
