When the B-25 flew into the Empire State Building. They don't build them like they used to.

Shouldn't there be evidence of rotor wash?:eyebrow:

And why is the landing gear down?

When I've seen them flying over my house the gear is always down.

Attachment 56688


The landing gear system consists of four non-retractable landing gears: two forward and two aft. The forward landing gear assemblies are fixed non-swiveling type, with two wheels per assembly, while the aft gear utilizes one wheel per assembly. A power steering unit is installed on the right aft gear only. Some early CH-47A aircraft are equipped with standard aft gear with two wheels at each location, but without power steering.
From here, page 9.

I could have sworn I'd seen them wheels-up.

Yes, a lot of it.
You may have seen pictures of a CH-46 where the rear wheels don't hang down very far, or maybe a 107/234 that PAN AM and the loggers use(d). I'm not sure if they had retractable gear or not.
