A380-800 - Main Landing Gear
Goodrich manufactured the A380-800 Main Landing Gear, which consists of 20 tyres. The 2 Main Body Bogies (or Trucks) consist of 6 tyres each. The Wing Mounted Gear consists of a port and starboard bogie, consisting of 4 Tyres each. The same Wing Mounted Bogies can also be found on the A330/340.
16 of the tyres are fitted with brakes, the two rear tyres on each Main Body Gear bogie, however have no breaks fitted, but are articulated and can be steered into corners to avoid scrubbing of the tyres during tight turns. A similar system is fitted to the Main Body Gear of the B747-400.
