Maybe I'm going out on a limb here in assisting you Waldo.

But to me it looks like two very big wheels on one very big axle.

I hope this has been of great help to you http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

It is a early paint striper, used to mark two "yard lines" on a football field at once. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Or, a heavily used cotton bud.

whatever it is, what i do know is that its not supposed to be there, and that something else is likely to have been attached to it not too long ago.

how bout those stooges standing round, looking at it.

that bloke on the left looks like it rolled over him a few times or he's hit the ground along with everything else attached to the bogey set, and doesnt quite know where he is yet, hanging onto the wheel for support? Scruffy baarstard.

and i have no idea what that goose in the middle's trying to do. You'll do your back in fool. Leave it alone.

From the twin engines off in the distance, might it be for rolling planes that broke gear and went off runway out of the mud?

I heard that fuel was sometimes transported inside huge tires. Is that one of those?

take off undercarriage assy for the dday gliders, towed by DC-3s.

the assembly was never meant to fly, and to take off from grass: thats why it has such large low pressure tyres and has no attachment points on the axle of any kind.

at the end of the take off, the gliders lifted out of the carriage and it rolled to a stop at the end of the runway.

though, that wreckage in the right foreground bothers me....

Well done. Correct.

Here is the caption from the magazine I had scanned.

This photograph illustrates just how massive the Me 321's jettisonable undercarriage really was. The wheels were those of the Ju90. Including the two jettisonable Me 110 wheels forward on the nose, the entire undercarriage weighed more than two tons. It was jettisoned immediately after takeoff. The Me 321 landed on skids.

From Luftwaffe im focus 3 rd edition page 47.
