    That -900 is so long you must not be able to be more than a few degrees pitch up on landing, similar to the A346 I would think

    I'm not to sure. I don't think its that big of a factor though. The MLG sits pretty far back. So far I have never seen the indicator popped on the supplemental gear in the back.

    I once shut down the main runway at MCI when tail high we blew a tire on takeoff in the DC3,it was extremely violent and I was blessed to keep her on the runway, it took a crane to clear us off($$$), the vibrations were so severe that one of our fuel tanks cracked resulting in a HAZMAT situation,not one of our better days. We ended up getting a ferry permit the next day and flying her back to KPTK VFR with a WAC chart in our laps,at 1500 feet agl,so at least we got some fun out of it.
    The beehive hummm of the JT9D and GE CF680C2,the thunder of the JT8D-17,the rumble of the PW1830 and the high ,thin whine of the PW 545A are all music to my ears!
