      Hi!
      i was looking for some pictures of the CRJs wheel wells, and i failed. i Searched the whole internet and approximetly 2000 photos von airliners.net, but i could not find a single photo focused on the wheel bays. does anyone have some or know where to find some picture material from the bird from the underside?
      thx and all the best

      The main gear wheel wells had fiberglass inserts in the round sections where the tires lived, so there wasn't much to see there. There is a good shot of the same set-up in the Challenger, here: http://hedgehoghollow.com/buzz/walkarounds/challenger.html

      The nose gear well wasn't very busy, either. Just the usual hydraulic lines and wiring. There isn't going to be much to see, because the forward doors were usually closed, except when the gear was cycling or if they were manually opened. Sadly, the walk around photos I took of a Midway jet many years ago have long ago disappeared. I had even opened the nose gear doors to get some shots of the gear well.

      HTH.
