Before we begin, I made an error in Part I of this article. In Figure 3 the weight on the main gear should be 1,196 pounds, not the 1,271 pounds shown. The 1,196 pounds is just the measured weight on the main tires, the 600 pounds for the right gear plus the 596 pounds for the left gear. Since we were summing the moments around the main gear, the error did not affect the calculation.
