At BWI often our 727 is lined up behind a half-dozen or more USAir 737s.
My crew and I have consistently noticed something every time we taxi
behind a 737.  From behind, they seem to be bent while taxiing!  What I
mean is, while the nose wheel is on the centerline and tracking straight,
the main wheels are not equidistant from the centerline.  It looks like
the thing is crabbing.  What's the deal with that?  Anybody?
