727 has three HYD Systems, A, B and stby.

All Gears are A supplied.

Mie...Just as an afterthought...when the nose gear does retract, there are rubber "bumpers" in the top of the nosegear well which stop the wheels from rotatring...God I miss that sound...

Also, in the beginning, the 727's were equipped with nose gear brakes...activated when either pilot applied more than 80% pressure (B System) on the brakes upon landing...

Most operators removed these brakes for 3 reasons...#1: Unless you really screwed up, you never had to use 80% brake pressure...(the main wheel brakes are very over engineered)...#2: MEL reasons...if they were installed they had to work,,,if memory serves correct they could be deferred for 3 or 10 days, depending on the operator's OPSSPECS, and #3:..Removal of the NWB's saved about 110 lbs. in weight...Hope this helps...

Also, the brakes are powered by "B" System...

I believe it was when the brake peddles were depressed greater than 50%

Aveng...could be, my memory is foggy, but for some reason 80% sticks in my mind, however, you are right, it is brake peddle depression, which equates to pressure applied...

We are saying the same thing, just the number is different...still miss the rubber bumper noise...happy flying if you still are, I envy you...cheers...
