View Full Version : 737 Taxying

Why on taxying behind 737s do they not appear to be running straight. They seem to crab along!

The crabbing typically comes from uneven weight distribution. You see, the nose gear leg is slightly bent by uneven weight distribution and main gear left leg is slightly compressed, which all comes from the weight of the Captain's wallet.. .. .[ <img border="0" title="" alt="[Smile]" src="smile.gif" /> Sorry - I couldn't resist this one]
