Here’s how he did it

A couple of days ago I posted a link to an incredible video on YouTube of a flight taken from the perspective of a small camera mounted on the nose gear of a 747-200. In the video, the nose gear is lowered well-before the main gear, which led a couple of people (including myself) to wonder how they did it.

According to a new “making of” video, it’s really not that complicated because there are controls that allow them to manually lower each landing gear independently.
