All About "U"

Hello everyone!

Last week's TRIPLE TRIVIA question came from Andy Sinclair, one of our Twitter followers, and he asks everyone:

How much more pavement is required for the -300 series to make a 180 degree "U" turn?


My Answer:  

An additional 29 feet.
 
The 777-300ER requires 185 feet (57 meters) to make the required turn as the 772 requires 156 feet.  The spaces required, however, can be lessened by using different brakes and/or asymmetrical thrusting..

Once again, thank you so much Andy for your submission!

Now onto this week..

  1. The turning wing. If it's not that, then it's the nose gear. :P
