F-84B Main Gear Well

Main gear-bay of the F-84B at Planes of Fame Notice the "dog-leg" shape at the upper right which is typical of Thunderjets through the C-model. This "dog-leg" was eliminated when the gear-collapse (at retraction) mechanism was changed from hydraulic to mechanical starting with the D-model. Bruce Craig.
