RE: Amazing Aviation Facts

Airplane tires are filled with nitrogen, not air. They would explode from the pressure change if they had air.

After take off, the breaks are applied to the main gear to stop the wheels from spinning as they are raised up into the well.

The wheel well of a 747-400 is 230 sq. ft.
