A visitor from United States posted Thu August 26, 2010:
Yes, the gear can rotate for cross-wind, but this is only used for landing. The cant of the wheels in this photo are due to the manner the gear retracts into the fuselage, you can confirm this by looking at the wing-tip gear that is almost stowed as well. The gear retraction/extension is unique to the B-52. I worked on the 'D' and 'H' models and flew on the 'H' models. --DtD

A visitor from United States posted Fri June 12, 2009:
The gear can actually rotate up to 45 degrees (I believe), independently of the fuselage. This was designed due to the massive surface area of the Buff's wings which makes it particularly sensitive to cross winds. The -52 can actually land almost perpendicular to the runway (as it is about to do here)!

One would be forgiven for thinking this ac was a crop duster given the emissions...

What a picture, fantastic. But not sure if God would bless a bomber.

The best bomber of history

God bless the BUFF

Clear shot, good illustration of the "Yawing mains" Forget about the crosswinds!!

A visitor from Australia posted Sun October 1, 2006:
You can feel the power of those 8 jets coming thru this shot. Well done thanks for sharing with us:-)

A visitor from United States posted Fri September 29, 2006:
The gear's like that because he's retracting it. I hung out at Barksdale AFB for a few days and that's how the gear goes up

A visitor from Australia posted Tue September 26, 2006:
'As far as the gear goes, perhaps something, some feature, for crosswind correction'...
This is corect.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon September 25, 2006:
Great Shot of the B-52 and it's smokeys!!! Pretty sure that the gear is being re-tracted and that's why it looks a little strange.

A visitor from United States posted Sun September 24, 2006:
Awesome pic! As far as the gear goes, perhaps something, some feature, for crosswind correction? Crabbed into the wind, but the wheels are straight down the runway.

A visitor from Germany posted Sun September 24, 2006:
I never saw such big gears. But I really don't understand the direction of the wheels.

A visitor from United States posted Sun September 24, 2006:
Very cool...look at the angle of the landing gear!

A visitor from Ireland posted Sat September 23, 2006:
Incredible and very rare shot. Truly impressive.

Look at that gear!! What a great shot! Well Done!
