Yes, that is why...it's not too clear in that picture, but only the aft trucks are down. When they extended the forward gear before landing, it got squirrely during the cycle, but once the gear was down, they managed to keep directional control with differential thrust.

Gee, your mention of CAT brought back *lots* of memories. (Not all of them
good...) Check the avatar I'm using here...

I worked on MedCAT, which flew F-102 and F-106 aircraft.

Reminds me of about 20 years ago flying from central Georgia up to Northern Virginia at 9000.

Centre: Bonanza 162MD cleared block 6000 to 14000.
162MD: Say again??????
Centre: You're going to need it.

He was right.

Wow. We actually asked for a bit more, but 1000 feet is all he could give us.
