    I was part of the team that wrote the Fly-By-Wire? (FCC) for this great bird. I still shed a lil tear each titme I see this clip. There is no way the test pilots could not had performed these tests without all our 0s and 1s going bonkers on 3 separate systems.

    @TOPGUNONETIME There’s a reason why Cessna called the tricycle-gear system “Land-O-Matic,” and it has everything to do with the plane’s inherent tendency? to right itself and continue in a straight line. A tailwheel airplane has the opposite tendency: because the CG is behind the main wheels, it wants to ground loop. The theory is backed by my personal experience as an actual pilot who flies on a routine basis: right now I can see runway lights if I look out the window. What’s *your* story?

    @northernflights when you land a tricycle-gear airplane crabbed if the pilot dont do? anything the plane will side load and run right off the runway, it wont straighten out on its own

    @RonAir99 actually, it was in? Edards I was there seeing it. but I think you are talking of the 777-200ER, this is the 777-200. not sure

  8. RonAir99 says:

    I? believe that video was actually taken in Brazil at a Brazilian Air Force Base. Boeing was there with not only a 777 but a 747SP doing Xwind tests.

    @Zorakic Actualy it is the wind it self that is? blowing to the wind that makes that the nose is pointing in to the wind.
