Support overload. We are currently seeing 65% more demand for support then we normally see. We can only assume this is because more people are at home due to the corona crises. Our complete support staff is online and they are working flat out, but it will take some days before we can scale up resources. Please be patient.

Quoting:

" Weighing 3,400 kilograms (7,500) pounds) this main landing gear is one of the largest in commercial service. This particular gear was removed from an A330 that made a successful forced landing in 2001. "

 

Do 3400x2 that would equal to ~7000tons (or 15000lbs). so 7 tons is your answer :)

And the nose gear? :)

 

Snap, forgot that aircraft have no gears :D

I think it  was mentioned A350 design video that nose weight weight is under 2 tons. So i'd assume A330 is around there.

 

So to correct my math, it say all together @Ausflight you're looking @ around ~8.5 - 10tons for the whole under carriage.
