In article <airliners.1996.1706@ohare.Chicago.COM>, firstname.lastname@example.org (JbTex) says: >When jet airliners take off, they seem to tuck their >landing gear away soon after liftoff.

There is no retardation of the wheel that I know of. I think it is ok for them to be spinning when they enter the wheel well. I suppose the pilot could touch the brakes after lift off to stop the wheels from spinning.
