Walk-around of the inboard engine nacelle on the starboard wing, featuring two J47 engines and the outrigger landing gear.

Picture 1 of 8.

The B-47's wings were too thin to house customary retracting wheels, so the outrigger gear retracts into a housing between the two J47s in the engine nacelle (although the plane is displayed with its landing gear doors closed).
