Anyone know the exact MLG inflight tilt angle on the B777?

The MLG truck positioner actuator moves the main landing gear truck to 13 degrees forward wheels up (TILT) when the airplane is in the air and the landing gear is down and locked.

The actuator also moves the truck to approximately 5 degrees forward wheels down (STOW) during a gear retraction. The gear stays in this position during flight.

On the ground it depends on the WOW.

Also, the 777-300ER has an oleo extension system that effectively lengthens the strut during rotation giving greater clearance at the tail. :ok:
