RE: YAL 1 Programme

The YAL-1A proved itself effective against both solid fueled and liquid fueled missiles and was successful in shooting them down. It was cancelled so the money could be used for "other things".  <img src="http://cdn-www.airliners.net/aviation-forums/graphics/smilies/wink.gif" width="15" height=...

The 777 gear is also longer than the 787's, besides having three axles each. The 787 has relatively short gear for a wide body.
