Would a 747 taxi faster than an ATR42?
|Quoting Mir (Reply 5):|
Reason being that if a 747 is going 30kts, that would be getting into the range where you might have enough lift to get the nosewheel off the ground in the 172.
|Quoting IFIXCF6 (Reply 9):|
If you taxi an MD11 (or DC10) at ANY speed or ANY weight, a 45 or 90 degree turn WILL cause the outer nosewheel tire to lift, simple physics, an angled nose strut.
Gee, I'll have to tell flight trg. dept. they're full of ....I probably could have phrased it this way; amount of lifting is also proportional to nose wheel deflection. Limiting speeds in the turn also limits side loads on the inside tire.The tire can be rolled off the wheel rim.
[quote=IFIXCF6,reply=9] If the tower gave an order to "expedite", I would get my self off the runway, quick as possible. They may be landing a 152, or have a 744 with an IFE. They do not need to explain. Yes, as a mechanic, I am DC10/MD11 taxi qualified.

i remember after landing in DEN in a bae146 we turned of on a highspeed takiway still in reverse thrust going fast enough that every swayed and jerked. we must have kept a 40kt speed going a while....

Here is a true story about a DC-8 freighter flight many years ago leaving Tokyo close to curfew, you decide if its caused by taxiing too fast.
|Quoting IFIXCF6 (Reply 21):|
I mearly wanted to point out the possibilities, not assumptions, that would be going through my head, based on what you wrote. Peace.
