Hi,

Does anyone have any photos comparing the two types of landing gear? Were block 30s that had the original gear updgraded recently, or was it just a case of updating the landing lights?

I've seen the same block 30 airframe #86-0314 with both types of lights on it, so I assume it's at least the latter that was done.

Thanks!

Are you talking about the landing/taxi light location?
If so, AFAIK, the landing gear was not change, just the location of the light so that if pods are carried on the intake (like a TGP) the light will not be block. Same thing has been done on some A/B models as well.
