Remarks: To me the landing gear is one of the most fascinating parts on an aircraft. It's almost unimaginable that those comparatively small parts carry the whole weight of the aircraft. And let's not forget the brutal forces it has to cope with during a landing for example... simply amazing!

Remarks: I flew on this Concorde a year later on a supersonic flight from Paris to Manchester.On this particular day the aircraft was delayed for departure as the fire service attended to deal with a leakage of fuel onto the apron.The aircraft shut down on the taxiway for a while until the matter was resolved.Eventually the aircraft was given the all clear to continue its supersonic charter.
