Aerospace Aerospace buckling

    Can someone give me a real-life example of an aerospace structure buckling? I need a real example to discuss column buckling theory..etc. I couldn't find any online. Thanks.

    There aren't a lot of examples of loaded columns in aircraft, but one place might be the landing gear.
