WHAT DOES TAIL WHEEL MEAN IN ENGLISH?

tail wheel

Conventional landing gear

Conventional landing gear, or tailwheel-type landing gear, is an aircraft undercarriage consisting of two main wheels forward of the center of gravity and a small wheel or skid to support the tail. The term conventional persists for historical reasons, but nowadays most aircraft—including all jet aircraft—are configured with tricycle gear. The term taildragger is aviation jargon for an aircraft with a conventional undercarriage, although some writers have argued that the term should refer only to an aircraft with a tailskid and not a tailwheel.
