Hughes XF-11 Landing Gear Design

Due to the shear size of the XF-11 and the compressed schedule, the retractable landing gear needed to be built from scratch. The Aero Telemetry crew designed a system that included the main pivot structure, hydraulic actuators, and nitrogen filled struts, all powered by a 28VDC Parker Hannifan Oildyne Pump.

The flawless operation of the massive landing gear was a main contributor to the success of the Aero Telemetry XF-11 Airplane.
