When I was doing my 777 CBT homework it mentioned that when the gear is extended using the alternate gear extension, the gear does not incline upwards.
My question is why is it tilted in the first place and why doesn't it incline upward during the emergency alternate extension?
Oh one other thing-
Also I noticed on the 777 test flights that there was a string and a ball on the top of the rudder? Again can anybody help?
