there is a "silver" line behind the gear doors that goes from one side of the underbelly to the other. As far as I've noticed, it is on each and every A380. Does anybody know what it's for?

Hi A380900,

The line was discussed before, almost exactly one year ago...  Wink

It's a flexible joint to help absorption of bending loads.

We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.
