Something trouble about the right main landing gear.Now do the test of landing gear system when the A/C has been lifted with the jacks.

Now that's something you don't see every day! I sure hope that mx was careful with setting up the jacks. Would you want to be the one to have to explain a 777 sliding off them? I can't believe you only need 4 jacks to support a 777!

That's crazy!!! Simply an amazing shot! Those jacks don't look really that strong to hold up that beast! WOW! I wouldn't be standing directly under it like those folks. Simply incredible.

That is having a LOT of confidence on your equipment (the jacks)....also, this livery (front end) looks a lot like now defunt Eastern's.

At first glance there is nothing spectacular about the photo itself, however, it is so unique it makes it one of the coolest pictures around! Great job! Definitely a double take! I guess you could call this 777 highjacked? :) Nice shot!

Not a hope in hell you'd get me standing under a 777 on jacks. I look at the picture and expect to see it flying due to the lack of dangling Dunlops only to realise it's stationary and still in the air.

What an unusual picture. I love it :)

Before veiwing the larger version of this photo I thought this was a photo of a very low flypass, The calm and collected chaps underneath casually chatting amoungst themselves arms folded told me otherwise however. Such flimsy looking supports holding up such a bulky Aircraft is what Impresses me about this shot.

You dont jack an aircraft out in the open...should be in an enclosed hangar which standards are bein followed here????? and by the way you only need 3 jacks....the one at the nose is only to ensure stability and allow movement inside the aircraft....c of g shift...

That was my first thought as well: why is it outside like this?

With a system like this, you won't even need a conveyor belt!.Just put a big fan behind the plane and spool up the engines!

To the visitor from Kenya. One would put the aircraft in a hanger, IF one is available. At remote airfields a hanger big enough for a 777 are rare. Also this aircraft is not a tail dragger, but has a nose wheel. Nose wheel aircraft are noseheavy.
