Remark Photographer
PH-HZE (cn 28377/277) Ever wondered what the inside of a 737 wheelwell would look like? As you see, there are a lot of coloured parts, tubes and wires. [Nikkor 10.5mm Fisheye]

I would love to be there

A visitor from France posted Mon October 15, 2012:
It's gorgeous! Imagine what will happen if only one of all those wires is cutted! An aircraft is very complicated!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue September 4, 2012:
An angle I have never seen before, and I did not expect so many mechanical parts open to air,

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Wed December 7, 2011:
Woah, nice shot! With the size of the hole to fit the landing gear in when raised, this shot really gives you an idea of how big the wheels are!

A visitor from Brazil posted Fri May 27, 2011:
Hard to imagine how some crazy people trying (or tried in the past) to travel illegally into the landing gear compartment.

A visitor from Canada posted Sat July 24, 2010:
Excellent perspective on this shot. A tremendous eye for photography. Well done!

A visitor from - posted Mon May 10, 2010:
It is just amazing the amount of work and precision that goes into building just one 737 and there are thousands of these in the whole world. Great shot!!

A visitor from - posted Wed March 3, 2010:
As myself a pilot of a BOEING 738 when the bird is in for check-up I go-around with the ingeneers and they show me how many small parts are needed to make those big birds fly, keep-up the good job, from capt. L. G ROCHETTE AIR FRANCE pilot,

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat February 27, 2010:
Awesome photo and such a great perspective on the mechanics of these amazing machines. Hope to see much more from you! Look at all that engineering....wicked! :-)

A visitor from - posted Fri February 26, 2010:
Someone asked, how did he position himself to take this shot? The photographer is standing in the right hand wheel well and looking over the centerline of the aircraft (called the "Keel beam") at the left wheel well. Great rare shot. Hope we see more like this.

A visitor from Germany posted Tue December 15, 2009:

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun December 13, 2009:
Great shot! But how do you position yourself to get that photo?

A visitor from - posted Thu November 26, 2009:
Hope you got out before take off. Great shot!

A visitor from - posted Wed November 18, 2009:
Ohh, it is so complex! How do you get this exclusive shot?

A visitor from Denmark posted Sun October 18, 2009:
Very awesome view, it's nothing we get to see ever, so thanks for this magnificent image, showing us the inside of that 737 MLG bay. However I am curious to know if once the wheels have been retracted into the wheel, is there a breaker that will stop it from spinning furthermore after off, so that it doesnt gyro-spin after takeoff.

A visitor from - posted Sat September 12, 2009:
!!! 5 star shot! winderful :-)

A visitor from United States posted Mon July 13, 2009:
WOW! What a creative photo! I always wonder why Boeing designed the 737 like this, with the wheel out in the open. Doesn't that create more drag, thus increasing fuel consumption?

A visitor from United States posted Tue June 30, 2009:
Never seen this one before... amazing!

A visitor from - posted Tue June 30, 2009:
YES, 5 Stars! The orange warning stripes on shaft is the flap drive torque tube. VERY dangerous mechanism. Rotates VERY fast and instantaneously. The coating on the structure is indeed "corrosion inhibiting compound" or CIC. Brand name Dinol. Tank on lower left is hydraulic reservoir. Levers and shafts on upper right are the aileron and spoiler mixer mechanisms....aka "monkey-motion". Must be a new aircraft...too clean.

A visitor from - posted Tue June 9, 2009:
It is an amazing feat of engineering , that all those hydraulic components are so exposed to low atmospheric pressures and temperatures associated with high altitude, yet are not affected .

A visitor from - posted Mon June 8, 2009:
A remarkably original perspective from which to view the undercarriage.

A visitor from Netherlands posted Mon June 8, 2009:
Pff, so many wires and tubes, never saw it like this!

A visitor from - posted Fri May 15, 2009:
Awesome !

This has got to be one of the craziest angles seen in this site.

Is this kind of picture what makes this site so special !

Greetings from Argentina.

A visitor from Canada posted Sun April 26, 2009:
Wonderful, i was recently in the WestJet hangar at CYYC, the inside looks like that, only a lot dirtier, this an incredibly clean aircraft hahaha very nice

A visitor from Portugal posted Mon February 16, 2009:
The world inside-out perspective never looked so well

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue January 6, 2009:
Does the 737 wheel come up sideways?

A visitor from United States posted Fri January 2, 2009:
Look at all the wiring! It's crazy!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Wed December 31, 2008:
Excellent idea 5/5 stars definitely

A visitor from United States posted Tue December 23, 2008:
Very interesting photo, never thought it would look like that. Very good photo

A visitor from United States posted Wed November 5, 2008:
Wonderful shot i had no idea that it was possible to get that veiw!

A visitor from - posted Mon October 27, 2008:
Well designed photographically. Also an eye opener as to what is down there when I land, take-off.

A visitor from Norway posted Tue September 23, 2008:
Simply brilliant and innovative

A visitor from Brazil posted Fri August 15, 2008:
5 stars for the unique perspective.

A visitor from Venezuela posted Tue July 29, 2008:
Lovely shot! how did u do it? great!!!!

A visitor from - posted Wed July 23, 2008:
Never before seen perspective! Obviously looking at the main gear strut, let alone this wheel well, it's a relatively new aircraft. And no, this opening does not expose anything any more than any other open wheel well does on other aircraft.

A visitor from Uzbekistan posted Fri July 18, 2008:
This is the one of the best photos of 737NG L/H MLG and its wheeel well I have ever seen. One of the most complex part of A/P for maintenance.

A visitor from - posted Wed July 2, 2008:
The is shot is extremely unique and like nothing I have ever seen before......WOW

A visitor from - posted Sat June 28, 2008:
Viewing this photo is like sitting inside the front wheel area. The mass of wires and tubes, etc really make this a striking photo with the shot of the runway and front wheel in the middle of the photo.

A visitor from Kenya posted Mon May 19, 2008:
The orangy stuff is a corrosion protection fluid which sticks to the aircraft structure and prevents water ingress. it is called lps3.wheel wells are not always that clean by the way

A visitor from United States posted Thu May 15, 2008:
There you go! That's a first!
But, are you a stow-away?

A visitor from Egypt posted Wed May 14, 2008:
Is it just me or are those wires over-exposed to weather conditions?....won't those get affected by time?

A visitor from Pakistan posted Tue May 13, 2008:
Really great shot and informative as well.

A visitor from Germany posted Sun May 11, 2008:
Nice imagination of how much technology is inside a wheelwell! Great shot !

A visitor from Israel posted Sun May 11, 2008:
I would like to see the movie - same POV when retracting and opening. Gave you *****!

A visitor from United States posted Sat May 10, 2008:
Nice shot!
The orange fluid is probably an anti-corrosion chemical.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat May 10, 2008:
Thank you for all the wonderful comments and votes. Indeed the right side is the front part of the airplane.

A visitor from Netherlands posted Sat May 10, 2008:
Actually, Yes, I did wonder how that would look like! And a day or two later this photo caught my eye! Great shot!

A visitor from Canada posted Sat May 10, 2008:
How Did You Get In There?

A visitor from Australia posted Sat May 10, 2008:
Great Pic!!! Im guessing the front is to the right of the picture, but just for the record, can you confirm??

A visitor from Japan posted Sat May 10, 2008:
Unique perspective! We have all seen landing gear wheel wells, but the 737 does not have MLG doors. In this photo you can see the rubber seal that acts as a fairing between the tire and the airframe

A visitor from United States posted Fri May 9, 2008:
One of the rare pics about mechanics of airplanes

A visitor from Australia posted Fri May 9, 2008:
Blimey!...a bit of plumbing and wiring in there!!??!!
Defenitely need the manual to do any work in here!! :-)

A visitor from Canada posted Fri May 9, 2008:
This photo shows the complexity of the machine usually hided from the outside world! Wonderfull!!
For the United kingdom visitor, the orangy stuff on the walls of the well might be a coating applied for rust prevention, such as Dinitrol.

A visitor from Canada posted Fri May 9, 2008:
Very unique shot!

And in response to the UK visitor, i would think thats De-ice fluid (Type I)

A visitor from Germany posted Fri May 9, 2008:
For all those who are wondering... You stand upright on the tarmac, you upper half is in the wheel well, you turn towards the other gear, lift the camera a bit and ... klick!

A visitor from Greece posted Fri May 9, 2008:
And Now for Something Completely Different! 5*

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri May 9, 2008:
Interesting shot, five stars...
What's that orangy stuff on the walls of the well? Hydraulic? Deicing liquid? Dirt?

A visitor from Germany posted Fri May 9, 2008:
Great Angle for this Photo!!!
remembering me to my Nightshifts for the Inspection at the Nightstops at HAJ-HapagLloyd

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri May 9, 2008:
Amazing shot, with amazing location, how did you get in there.

A visitor from - posted Fri May 9, 2008:
I wonder how many stowaways have met their fate in this wheel well...

A visitor from Sweden posted Fri May 9, 2008:
Unique photo indeed. A new perspective on those tragic hitch-a-ride stories.

A visitor from Pakistan posted Fri May 9, 2008:
Great photo taken from unique position! Well done!!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri May 9, 2008:
That is what I call an airplane!!
Fastinating photo!

A visitor from United States posted Fri May 9, 2008:
Well, well, well.

Sorry, couldn't resist.

A visitor from Spain posted Fri May 9, 2008:
Very interesting! I would never imagined such complexity.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri May 9, 2008:
Cool, just incredible point of view

A visitor from Germany posted Fri May 9, 2008:
This is Art.

A visitor from Sweden posted Fri May 9, 2008:
Rare angle, gives us that is *not* technicians an insight... :)

A visitor from Netherlands posted Thu May 8, 2008:
Indeed a very rare view. My plumber would be ashamed for this, but... he does not document his work.

A visitor from - posted Thu May 8, 2008:
Looks grea and complex.

A visitor from Canada posted Thu May 8, 2008:
Great Perspective, as you mentioned, lots of colored parts. For all of us aircraft technicians, we know how to interpret what each means.

A visitor from - posted Thu May 8, 2008:
Unique!! Great idea for a shot. Now I wonder how did you to place de cam there......

A visitor from United States posted Thu May 8, 2008:
OK this is definitely not the place to sit for a free ride.

A visitor from United States posted Thu May 8, 2008:

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu May 8, 2008:
