Landing Gear, Top and Bottom?

At the air-museum by where I grew up, there was a bi-plane that had tricycle landing gear on the bottom of the plane, where it is supposed to be, but it also had landing gear on the top...

Anyone know which plane this is or if there is a download for it?

Thanks!

Ha, never heard of it... landing gear on top just in case you accidentally flew your plane in upsidedown? 😂

You sure it was landing gear? Could it have been one of those contraptions that are used for stunts - can't remember what they're called - but some dare devil stands on top of the wings during flight supported by some type of framework.

I know an old timer (91 years young) that saw a dual landing gear Bi-plane at Osh Kosh. He said he believes it was the year the Concord was there. He said it took off and landed but there was only one pilot trained to fly it. He also said that it was sold that weekend. This is probably the plane you saw in your local museum.

So I saw my old friend today and he said the buyer of the dual landing gear plane was the Oracle insurance company.
