The landing gear on the NG has been extensively redesigned. The nose gear is 3.5" longer to relieve higher dynamic loads and the nose-wheelwell has been extended 3" forward. The main gear is also longer to cater for the increased fuselage lengths of the -8/900 series and is constructed from a one piece titanium gear beam based on 757/767 designs. There is an externally mounted trunnion bearing on the gear, a re-located gas charging valve, and the uplock link is separate from the reaction link. It is fitted with 43.5" tyres and digital antiskid.
