Landing gear ID?

Whenever I go to the warehouse to photograph items to put on eBay, I never know what I will see there. Yesterday, it was some landing gear on the trailer. It looks to me like nose landing gear, but I have no idea what it is from. I think it is from a military aircraft, but since it was made for Boeing, that narrows it down a bit. Could it be from a KC-135?? Or is it from something smaller?? Any of your military/civilian aircraft gurus know what it might fit??

Looks like a military number on the data tag. You could very well be correct that it’s from a KC-135, which is military tanker based on a B-707 design. By the way, those landing gear are usually titanium. Good scrap value!

Re: Landing gear ID?

If there is a National Stock Number or part number on that landing gear, I can look it up on WebFLIS and let you know what aircraft it would apply to. I have the WebFLIS logistics tool here where I work.

Re: Landing gear ID?

It could be from a B737 as well. They only made a bazillion of them.

Re: Landing gear ID?

I finally made it back over to the warehouse yesterday and the landing gear was still there. I couldn't find too many other numbers, but here are some photos of what I did find.

Re: Landing gear ID?

List it as “steampunk”. Some hipster will buy it for their “art car” and bring it to burning man.

The 3rd picture faintly shows 727-3G as a serial number. I would hazard a guess as a nose gear from a B727.
