    You mean the kind with air shocks and stuff?

    Quite a few with very short landing gear legs:

    U-2 spy plane

    X-15 rocket had a short nose wheel and back skids.  Had to dump the lower rudder to land.

    B-57 Canberra

    B-52

    B-47

    C-130

    Antonov A-224

    More cargo planes that can kneel down for loading or have wheels right at the edge of the body.

    Most gliders have just a small wheel right in the center, wingtips can touch.

    Lots of seaplanes that either stay in water or have folding landing gear that just barely get them up high enough to go on land.  The WW2 Catalina was like that.

    There was a 1950s Bristol Barbazon type 167 passenger aircraft that was low to the ground.
