Crap I can't see the pic (can't see aft.mil websites at all whatsoever) http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

I know that the flying tigers made some mods to their landing gear so that while they lowered it, some device would motion the wheels to start rolling, which would help the tires last longer. They were often short on parts, and their tires blew up all the times from the rough landings.

Does this pic have to do with those devices?
