Is it me, or have they edited the photo to make the 787 gear look tilted? Looks amazing though, wish all the planes had tilted gears :(

The a330 and 747 (in game) actually have a little bit of gear tilt.

Its gonna take a lot to drag me away from you. There’s nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do. I bless the rains down in Africa. Gonna take some time to do the things we never had.
