The formula for stress = force / area

so does anyone know a particular aircrafts force when it lands, and the area of the landing gear? If you know a website with data on this or other helpful info. please let me know what it is.

I could state the stress on the landing gear whilst on the ground stationary, but this would require the area. For the boeing 747 i know the maximum takeoff weight is 396890kg so i could use this figure but still need the area. Many thanks in advance
