TOW BAR, AIRCRAFT TOWING, KC-10 AIRCRAFT
|Publication Date:||10 July 2017|
This CID covers the KC-10 tow bar, which is used for towing and steering the aircraft by attaching it to the aircraft's nose landing gear (NLG) and being pulled by a tow tractor. It will be used to move aircraft to various locations around the flightline without powering up the aircraft, and to egress and regress aircraft from hanger facilities. The tow bar, once attached to the aircraft NLG strut, will then be attached to powered tugs to facilitate movement on the flightline.
