Hi all....please accept my apologies if this is not the proper place, but i will kindly ask your always welcoming knowledge and explanations.

Last night i was checking this airlines auction site, when i stuck on this item

https://www.airlineslides.com/listings/details/index.cfm?itemnum=1030209121

Alt View in case it goes selling (by Charly007, the OP credited as seller)

https://ibb.co/9GVhqPk

So here it is my doubt...i searched in all web last night but every site, picture, etc, this very same F-WWDA appears only with a normal two wheel boogie.

Only the 320s from Air India // Indian Al. appears like this with 4 boogie.

Even no mention at all in any historic site about it...so any help or possible explanation please..??

Tks in advance...Friendly, JF :)

The photo is of MSN 2, retained for the first 4 years of its life by Airbus and for a time painted (on one side only) in BCal colours, though of course it never entered service with them.

It's quite possible that it was used during development of the 4-wheel MLG while still painted as such.

4 wheel Boogie......is this a new dance?

Probably a phone autocorrect: they are a bane, but can be inadvertently funny.
