Pictures like this are great, I love! Because leave a little out of the standard images. Could we call it a "backstage work"? The kind of service that no one sees? 15*

A visitor from - posted Wed August 17, 2011:
I would say he just took it off, judging the way the tread looks and being that there is no replacement tire in the pic. I want that jack for my garage lol.

A visitor from Netherlands posted Thu July 21, 2011:
Cool pic. good job they are not jenson buttons mechanics...lol

A visitor from United States posted Tue May 31, 2011:
Judging by the position of the mechanic, I would say he is putting on a fresh tire. I wonder what that jack is rated at...

A visitor from Russian Federation posted Sat May 7, 2011:
Looks like wheel with TPIS

A visitor from Netherlands posted Thu March 31, 2011:
Just wondering.. the tire being handled by the mech... is it going on the bird or has he just taken it off? I can't tell from the profile, perhaps someone else can?

I'd like to see Jimmy Johnson's pit crew lift and mount one of those babies!

Pit Stop!!!!

A visitor from United States posted Thu December 10, 2009:
Wouldn't want to be under that thing.

A visitor from - posted Thu December 3, 2009:
No chocks,No steering bypass pin,No thread protector on the axle,using the torque wrench to loose the nut...hide this picture from Quality Assurance!!...

A visitor from United States posted Sat July 11, 2009:
That has got to be a pretty solid jack!

A visitor from United States posted Sun June 14, 2009:
No chocks on any of the tires...hope the parking brake is set so it doesn't roll off the jack. thats gotta be a heavy tire to manhandle!

Next Pit Stop Amsterdam..!!

Thank Goodness for the Auto Club

A visitor from Philippines posted Sun February 1, 2009:
Ok triple 7. wait the safety car to roll out and make a pitstop. ^_^

A visitor from United States posted Mon June 23, 2008:
I really like this shot, being able to see the tools the technician uses is very interesting and answers some questions for me. Thank you for the very good detail on the landing strut and composition.

A visitor from United States posted Sun June 1, 2008:
You've gotta be kidding, I never knew thre's a garage jack for planes.

A visitor from Mexico posted Fri November 23, 2007:
Wow! Just like in NASCAR competitions. T.B.

A visitor from United States posted Wed November 14, 2007:
Awesome photo! Really shows the size of the 777 landing gear.

A visitor from Nigeria posted Sat April 7, 2007:
I now have an idea of how huge a B777 tire is compared to man, & the relative size of our common car instruments!

A visitor from United States posted Thu January 4, 2007:
Awesome!
Show us much more of this kind of thing.
I really enjoy seeing the workings. In this case we get to see a more detailed picture of aircraft elements - at the same time we get some insight into the people and their jobs that make it happen and keep it going.

A visitor from Russian Federation posted Sun November 19, 2006:
Great photo! It shows that some things during the airplane pit stops are done manually. Not an easy job! After that changing a tyre on your car seem like a piece of cake!

A visitor from United States posted Mon October 30, 2006:
Regarding the last comment about mechanics/engineers- it's just a matter of terminology in the USA and Europe- in the USA a mechanic can be qualified to taxi aircraft around the airport, troubleshoot avionics/hydraulics/multiple systems- and ofcourse, change out a 777 tire!

A visitor from Netherlands posted Wed October 25, 2006:
In Europe we dont have mechanics but Technicians and Engineers , Mechanics are under qualified personnel who are just licenced to change seat covers and seat tables , 2 become a Licenced Aircraft Engineer you have to study hard and be very handy and smart during trouble shooting!

A visitor from United States posted Sat October 7, 2006:
Nice to see a pic of ground crews in action for a change!

Great Pitstop. How many seconds?

A visitor from United States posted Fri October 6, 2006:
Great shot. Too bad it doesn't show the plane full of pax getting ever more aggrevated that they haven't left yet. Been there.

A visitor from Indonesia posted Fri October 6, 2006:
Great view of the Amazing 777.....next stop "Lap 15" :)

A visitor from United States posted Thu October 5, 2006:
Very impressive. I always wondered how they changed tires on aircraft...That must be a hell of a jack.

A visitor from United States posted Thu October 5, 2006:
'Looks like we got a flat!'
'No problem lets just jack it right up!'

Amazing to see that T7s can be jacked up too! Great job by the mechanics.

A visitor from United States posted Thu October 5, 2006:
That wheel is huge!!!

A visitor from United States posted Thu October 5, 2006:

Are they really using a jack to lift that huge 777?
Shows the tremendous size of the tires. Thanks for posting.

A visitor from Australia posted Thu October 5, 2006:

Nice, that tyre must be very heavy from the mans' expression

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu October 5, 2006:
Look how big the wheels are compared to the men!! Not much between them.

A visitor from United States posted Thu October 5, 2006:
Great shot showing that planes don't change their own tires! i also like how northwest crew members are changing a tire on a T7, even though notrhwest doesn't fly any 777's. these guys sure know what they're doing though!

A visitor from Spain posted Thu October 5, 2006:
Amazing picture ! plenty of action !
