Remark Photographer
ZS-SLF (cn 006) [14:36] Close-up of this massive aircraft's starboard landing gear. The four massive wheels look a little flat even though there are currently no passengers on board this A340 and it has minimal fuel in its tanks. I'm guessing it weights half its MTOW. [Canon 400D + 100-400mm @ 370mm]

Very interesting detail shot of high quality. And as for the tire pressure, I think it needs to be somewhat low to allow for the air to expand when it heats up (higher surrounding temperature, when tires touch the ground and of course because of the heat radiates by the braking discs).

Brakes and wheels ok for next flightday
