Abstract:

A description is given of an aircraft landing gear consisting of a main beam with a crosspiece designed to be fastened to the frame of the fuselage, a half-axle with a wheel, a shock absorber, and a lock. For increased landing gear reliability, the axles form a parallelogram mechanism consisting of the main beam with a pull rod and the semi-axle with the crosspiece, which form the prescribed angle with the aircrafts direction of motion during forward movement, the frontal loads are taken up by the landing gears shock absorber.
