Aaah ... the Blue Angels! Magnificent! And what a great study of how the undercarriage folds away into the slim twin-engine body of the F/A-18. I'm always amazed at how modern fighters can stow away their complex undercarriage into their narrow bodies!

To follow up about conversation with retraction of the wheels. Can anyone tell me how long it take for this operation to happen, after the pilot applies the switch, to make the wheels retract?
