Nice view of the landing gear installations of the magnificient Tu-144. Just look at how long these engine nacelles are! Mystery of landing gear retraction solved: the wheels first folded sidewards, with the inner two pairs moving up. Then this whole installation folded forward into the gear bays. Could it get any more complicated? Minolta Dynax 60 + Sigma 2.8/28-70 EX DF + Fuji Provia 100F.
