“Leg muscles” that cushion a jet’s landing

When the landing gear of an F-86 Sabrejet hits the runway at lightning speed, the shock is absorbed by hydraulic action within the tough, precision-made cylinder on each “leg.” To machine these 37-lb. cylinders to exact tolerances from solid 158-lb. steel forgings … to give them mirror-smooth inside finishes . . . Cleveland Pneumatic depends on Lycoming.
