The landing gear system is electrically controlled,
hydraulically operated, and mechanically locked in
either the up or down position. It is comprised of the
left and right main landing gear (MLG) and the nose
landing gear (NLG). The landing gear system is
designed to absorb the shock of carrier landings.
Cockpit controls and indicators used to operate the
landing gear system include the LDG GEAR UP/DN
handle, the landing gear handle warning (red) light,
the EMER GEAR handle, the LDG GEAR LEFT, RIGHT,
and NOSE lights, the LDG GEAR DOOR light, the
WHEELS warning light, and the TONE button.
Maximum airspeed for lowering the gear and flying with
the gear extended is 200 KIAS and the landing gear
retract command is disabled unless the nose strut is
extended and the nose wheel is centered.
