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

Picture 3 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).

Note the landing light mounted below and between the two engines.
