Walk-around of the inboard J47 engine nacelle and the outrigger landing gear.

Picture 5 of 6.

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).
