Remark Photographer
HS-TGW (cn 27724/1111) You are interested in technical details? Here we have a routine tire change due to a worn out tread. The old tire is already demounted giving you the chance to see one of the brake packages and to allow a better view onto the axle the grommet has been removed for a second. Photo is approved for public release by both Thai Airways International and Lufthansa Technik!

And how much does Thai pay for a tire change?

A visitor from - posted Sat February 25, 2012:
You get five stars for that VERY well organized tool box alone. Everything is neat and clean from the tire change kit from the tool crib to the personal tool box, and even the axle jack. And even the landing gear itself is very clean. They normally get filthy with brake dust during normal use. These sparkle!

What a powerful mini jack! Amazing

Nice picture of what we(mechanics and engineers) do every day......
Recentely i changed a tire assy by my self in less than half an hour including getting the wheel change trolly :)

A visitor from - posted Sun November 7, 2010:
Great photo. I am curious about the wheel changing lever...

My fellow workers change 7 tires (tire & wheel assys) in 2 hours (2 man team) in a typical busy day... amazing.

A visitor from United States posted Sun November 7, 2010:
Did you get permission from Boeing and Airbus? :P

A visitor from New Zealand posted Thu November 4, 2010:
Great pic. to answer few ???s: wheel change takes about 30-60mins depending on experience of those doing the job. add 05-15mins if brake unit is also being changed. designed to enable quick change (LRU - Line Replaceable Unit)

A visitor from United States posted Wed November 3, 2010:
OK this is on the ground...easy!
Do this in the air! That's the trick!

A visitor from United States posted Wed November 3, 2010:
I didn't know they can do that

A visitor from Sweden posted Wed November 3, 2010:
Very interesting. I like that wheeled air to remove the wheel. Clean and easy.

A visitor from - posted Wed November 3, 2010:
Nice picture you don't have every day the chance to see of a bird,if you are not work of course for the airplane industie.as an engineer also (for ships) i found this kind of photos very interesting

A visitor from - posted Wed November 3, 2010:
Nice photo! How long does it take to change it?

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue November 2, 2010:
Always fascinating, thank you VERY much for sharing!

A visitor from United States posted Tue November 2, 2010:
Holy cow those brakes are insane

A visitor from United States posted Tue November 2, 2010:
Nice! :)

A visitor from United States posted Tue November 2, 2010:
Thanks for sharing! With the right tools, seems a lot easier than changing my flat car tire in the middle of nowhere!

A visitor from - posted Tue November 2, 2010:
VERY nice photo, thank you. What really amazes me is that orange jack. So small and holding 50 tons of the airplane.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue November 2, 2010:
Wow that is one worn out tire.
