What is that metallic & hydraulic sound?


Just returned to the US on an AB 330. During taxi at LHR, there was all this noise under the aircraft. I know I’ve
heard this before, but have always forgotten to ask about it. Is sounds like a clanking noise – also sometimes
combined with what might be hydraulics?



Gizmodo had a “general” type article about this sort of thing a week ago…

The comment section is fairly interesting, too, with many aviation types filling in more specific information.


Thanks for the link! Answered all my questions…
