Boeing’s 777 is the world’s largest two-engine passenger jet and can haul up to 451 people. At that size, it’s understandable that it needs the landing gear to match.

The Triple Seven has six wheels on each of its main landing gear. In this video, you can see ground tests as the main gear is deployed and retracted.
