AIRCRAFT RECOVERY MANUAL


INTRODUCTION
1. Purpose of Manual
The AIRCRAFT RECOVERY MANUAL is intended to provide Airlines and Airport
Authorities with optimum planning, preparation and accomplishment data for
the Lifting and moving of a disabled aircraft which may be obstructing
airport traffic.
2. Scope of Manual

The Manual contains general information covering the different aircraft


models. Of course, it will not be easy in every instance to locate all the
requisite data in the Manual within a very short time ; it is hence advisible
for Airport Authorities and Airlines to use this Manual to jointly draw up
one or more schemes based on their specific requirements, equipment available
as well as on recommendations contained in publications, such as the U.S.
Federal Aviation Agency circular AC 150/5200-13 of August 27, 1970, entitled
Removal of Disabled Aircraft, and the specification written by the ATA
Aircraft Recovery Subcommittee. Endeavours are made for the information in
this Manual to comply with that in the Aircraft Technical Specifications ;
however, in case of conflict, the Aircraft Technical Specification shall
prevail.

DAMAGE AND TERRAIN

1. The exact condition of a damaged aircraft must be ascertained in order to


prepare for its recovery and make arrangements for its repair at the earliest
opportunity.
WARNING : PRIOR TO STARTING RECOVERY PROPER, DISCONNECT AND REMOVE ALL
AIRCRAFT BATTERIES ; IF REMOVAL IS NOT POSSIBLE, DISCONNECT AND
INSULATE THE BATTERY GROUND TO AVOID ACCIDENTS WHICH MAY ARISE
BECAUSE OF SHORT CIRCUITS.
2. After the obvious damage has been observed, the structural condition of the
aircraft should be determined and an attempt made to visualize how the impact
might have been transmitted to other members. To this effect, throughly check
the external structure to the aircraft, panel by panel ; joggles, bulges in
the skin or at structural joints are indications of structure internal
damage ; rivets, bolts or other fasteners that are torn off or damaged are
also signs of damage and justify an internal inspection of the zones
concerned.
3. If the accident has been caused by any malfunction of the landing gear, it is
often possible to tow the aircraft after it has been lifted. It should be
determined whether the structure is capable of supporting the weight of the
aircraft lowered on to the gear. Several cases may occur :
A. The gears were up locked when the aircraft landed ; the aircraft rests on
the engines and on the aft fuselage. It is very probable the gears may be
extended and downlocked, after the aircraft has been jacked, and used for
normal towing.
B. When landing, the aircraft touched the runway violently or got bogged. The
gears or the gear struts have been damaged ; in certain cases, it will be
possible to strengthen the damaged parts temporarily by means of braces in
order to downlock the gear for towing.
C. If the gears have collapsed after touchdown because of a malfunction of
the landing gear locking, it is possible, if the condition of the aircraft
so allows, to strengthen the damaged parts, temporarily, as described
above.

2-10
Page 1
SEP 30/92
Printed in France

AIRCRAFT RECOVERY MANUAL


4. The violence of the shock, the position of the damaged aircraft and the
conditions of the terrain on which it landed, are major factors to be
considered in determining the method of recovery.
The other factors are :
A. Immediate availability of lifting equipment
B. Urgency of removal
C. The necessity of reducing the weight of the aircraft to ensure a safe
lifting operation.

DAMAGE CONTROL AND SAFETY
1. General
All necessary precautions must be taken when carrying out recovery operations
on crashed aircraft to avoid injury to personnel or damage to equipment.
WARNING : IT IS STRICTLY FORBIDDEN TO SMOKE OR EXPOSE NAKED LIGHTS.
2. Batteries
WARNING : PRIOR TO STARTING RECOVERY PROPER, DISCONNECT AND REMOVE ALL
AIRCRAFT BATTERIES ; IF REMOVAL IS NOT POSSIBLE, DISCONNECT AND
INSULATE THE BATTERY GROUND TO AVOID ACCIDENTS WHICH MAY ARISE
BECAUSE OF SHORT CIRCUITS.

HYDROCARBONS (FUELS, LUBRICANTS).
4. Fuel Tank Defueling
WARNING : BEFORE PROCEEDING WITH MAINTENANCE WORK ON OR NEAR MECHNICAL FLIGHT
CONTROLS OR PRIMARY FLIGHT CONTROL SURFACES, LANDING GEARS,
ASSOCIATED DOORS OR ANY MOVING COMPONENT, MAKE CERTAIN THAT GROUND
SAFETIES AND/OR WARNING NOTICES ARE IN CORRECT POSITION TO PREVENT
INADVERTENT OPERATION OF CONTROLS.
BEFORE POWER IS SUPPLIED TO THE AIRCRAFT MAKE CERTAIN THAT
ELECTRICAL CIRCUITS UPON WHICH WORK IS IN PROGRESS ARE ISOLATED.
BEFORE PRESSURIZING FUEL SYSTEMS, MAKE CERTAIN THAT FUEL SYSTEM
UNDER MAINTENANCE HAS BEEN ISOLATED.

WEIGHT AND H-ARM MANUAL
1. General
An accurate knowledge of the weight and horizontal arm from station 0 (zero)
(h-arm) location of a damaged aircraft is essential to determine the required
capacity of lifting and transportation facilities. In practically all cases,
it is advisable to reduce the weight of the aircraft as much as possible by
removing fuel and water, cargo and in certain cases some major aircraft
components : engines, flight surfaces etc...
2. Lifting weight of the Aircraft
A. Definition
The aircraft lifting weight (REW = Recoverable Empty Weight) is the
aircraft empty weight (MEW = Manufacturer's Empty Weight) plus the weight
of various items of operational equipment that are an integral part of the
aircraft.
The Manufacturer's Empty Weight is the dry weight (without fuel)
guaranteed by the manufacturer. The H-arm is given with the aircraft
considered in gears extended, flaps and slats retracted configuration.
B. Determination of the Lifting Weight
Obtain from the Weight and Balance Manual (WBM) the MEW of the considered
aircraft.
Obtain from this WBM supplement the weight of particular items of
equipment.
The sum of these different weights is the REW (Recoverable Empty Weight).

EMPTY WEIGHT REVISION AND H-ARM LOCATION COMPUTATION
1. Revised REW
With the REW having been computed as per page 1, subtract from the weight
obtained, the weight of the various components or items or equipment of the
aircraft in question which have been removed to reduce the weight of the
aircraft or which have been torn off or lost during the accident.
The weights of such equipment are given in the Weight and Balance Manual
(WBM).
The weights of major components of the aircraft which may be removed or torn
off in the accident are given in section 2-31 fig. 1 and 1A.
2. H-arm Location Computation
Using the data of the Weight and Balance Manual (WBM)
Compute the moments of :
a) The Manufacturer's Empty Weight (MEW)
b) The various items of equipment remaining on board.
Sum up these moments
Moment = Weight H-arm Location
Sum up the aircraft empty weight and the weight of the equipment
remaining on board.
Determine the location
Sum of the moments
H-arm =
Sum of the weights
Convert H-arm into %RC (Reference Chord).
%RC =

H-arm 34.532
0.0727

With the RC percentage obtained for the complete aircraft :


Using section 2-31, note any variations in H-arm location caused by
components having been torn off in the accident or removed.
Using the table in section 2-31, note any variations in H-arm location
due to the position of the nose gear, the flaps and the slats.
Compute the algebraic sum of these values.
Add or subtract, according to the sign, this sum to the %RC previously
obtained ; the H-arm location is obtained in percentage of RC of the
considered aircraft.

WEIGHT AND AIRCRAFT CG VARIATIONS DUE TO CARGO ABOARD
1. Establish the mass of the containers or pallets remaining in each cargo
compartment.
2. In order to determine the effect of this cargo on the aircraft CG location
proceed as mentioned in section 2-33, pages 1 to 3 (read cargo instead of
fuel in the corresponding applicable text and formula).
Using the following tables the masses of each container or pallet are
specified in increments of 250 kg (551 lb) or 500 kg (1 102 lb) for easy
interpolation. The values in column H-ARM represent the distance of the CG
of each container or pallet to the point about which the resulting "MOMENTS"
are being taken.
Adjusting the masses of the cargo load can reduce the lifting load by the
CARGO MOMENTS listed in the following tables :

AIRCRAFT RECOVERY MANUAL


REMOVAL OF POWER PLANT
1. General
When a power plant is damaged or removed it is necessary to calculate the
change in CG location for airplane recovery.
The loss of an airplane power plant (engine nacelle) will cause a lateral
shift in the airplane center of gravity (CG) (along the wing mean aerodynamic
chord) as well as aft (along the fuselage longitudinal centerline).
Removal of the remaining power plant may be necessary to facilitate lifting
the airplane. Such removal will cause the CG to return to its original
lateral position (as with both power plants installed) but will cause it to
move further aft. If the airplane can be supported and towed on its landing
gear, removal of the remaining power plant may not be necessary.
To aid in the computation of the airplane CG shift due to loss of the power
plant, the weights and CG locations of the complete power plant and of its
major components are given in Tables :
R
R
R

PW 4000 : Page 28
RR RB211 TRENT : Page 28A
GE CF6 80E1 : Page 28B
The CG locations are given by Nacelle Stationline, Nacelle Waterline, and
Nacelle Buttline as shown in Figure :

R
R
R

PW 4000 Engine : Page 27


RR RB 211 TRENT Engine : Page 27A
GE CF6.80E1 Engine : 27B
The power plant (nacelle) CG locations must be converted to the airplane
station system of space coordinates before they can be used to compute the
shift of airplane CG.
The new CG location could make it necessary to use different hoisting,
jacking, and shoring procedures to recover the airplane.

2. Analysis of Airplane CG Change Because of Power Plant
Removal or Damage
A. Look at the damage to each power plant to see what items are not there.
B. See Tables TBD (page 30) for the weights of the removed or lost component
and their CG locations in the nacelle. Convert nacelle component CG
locations to airplane station locations and calculate the arm for each
item from airplane CG.
C. Calculate the lateral and longitudinal change in the airplane CG because
of a removed power plant or components. See paragraph 3.
D. Put together the CG change because of damaged or removed power plants
with the CG change because of damaged or removed aircraft components and
calculate the total airplane CG change.
E. Decide if it is necessary to remove the remaining power plants so the
resulting CG change will make airplane recovery easier.
WARNING : DEATH OR SERIOUS INJURY MAY RESULT IF THE AIRPLANE FALLS ON RECOVERY

3. Calculation of Center of Gravity (CG) Location with one or more Power Plant
Removed
Use the weight and CG data from Table (Page 24 and 25) to calculate the
airplane CG changes because of power plant or component removal. The CG
locations are given by Nacelle Stationline, Waterline, and Buttline. See
Figure 2.
The power plant CG locations must be converted from the nacelle locations to
airplane station locations before they can be used to calculate the change in
airplane CG.
The change in CG location is calculated as follows :
1. The equation for the new location of the airplane CG is :
Airplane moment minus power plant moment
Airplane weight minus power plant weight

= airplane CG

2. The equation for percent of CG change of the airplane is :


Change in CG
Power Plant Arm

100 = percent of CG change

Airplane and power plant weight and arm values have been assigned as follows
for use in the examples. The true values may be different.
Recoverable Empty Weight (REW)

=
Power Plant Weight (PPW)
=
Power Plant Arm (PPA) laterally from CG =
Power Plant Arm forward of CG
=

340,000 lb

Calculation Example A :
Calculate the lateral change in CG because of removal of one power plant :
(REW AA) (PPW PPA)
REW PPW

340,000 10,500

= CG change in feet
=

0 262,500
329,500

= 0.796

In this example the calculation shows that when one power plant is removed,
the CG of this airplane moves laterally 0.796 feet from its initial CG
location toward the remaining power plants.

In this example the calculation shows that when one power plant is removed, the
CG of this airplane moves longitudinally aft 0.637 feet from its initial CG
location.
Calculation Example D :
Calculate the percent of longitudinal change in CG because of removal of one
power plant :

WEIGHT AND CG CHANGES DUE TO THE FUEL IN THE AIRCRAFT FUEL TANKS
R 1. General
The weight and CG position of the aircraft will change due to fuel quantities
in each tank.
R

To find the changes in weight and CG position, calculate :


the H-arm dimension along the longitudinal plane from nose to tail
the Y-arm dimension along the lateral plane from wing tip to wing tip.
The H-arm is a dimension from the CG of an item/component to the horizontal
arm reference datum plane.
The Y-arm is a dimension from the CG of an item/component to the lateral arm
reference datum plane.

R 2. H-arm Calculations (Ref. Fig.1)


R

To calculate the H-arm, establish the following :


the aircraft weight empty (Ref. 1-10 page 2)
the aircraft H-arm at 25% Reference Chord (RC). This is the H-arm design
ref.
the total fuel moment
the total fuel weight.

To calculate the total weight and moment of the fuel in the tanks :
find the remaining fuel quantities in each tank
use the mass and moment data on pages 9 thru 17.

R
R

Use this information in Equation 1 to determine the effect of the fuel on the
H-arm.
Equation 1 :
H-arm from position X0 =
(Aircraft Wt Empty x Aircraft H-arm) + Total Fuel Moment
Aircraft Wt Empty + Total Fuel Wt

After Equation 1 is complete, calculate the change in the percentage


Reference Chord in Equation 2.
Equation 2 :
% RC =

H-arm 34.532

is used for (A330-300)

An example of how to calculate the H-arm from position X0 and the change in
the percentage RC is shown.

Enter this H-arm in equation 2 and calculate the % RC :

% RC =

% RC = 19.716%

3. Y-Arm Calculations
When the aircraft is in level flight the Y-arm dimension is usually loaded
equally about the centerline. That is, the Y-arm dimension about the RH wing
is equal to the Y-arm dimension about the LH wing.
In this configuration all the moments and loads are equal about the
centerline.

R
R

To calculate the Y-arm for an aircraft on a recovery, establish the


following :
the aircraft weight empty
the dimension from the aircraft centerline to the MLGs
the dimension from the aircraft centerline to the jacking point
the total fuel weight
the total fuel moment.

R
R
R

To find the total fuel weight and moment of the fuel in the tanks :
find the remaining fuel quantities in each tank
use the mass and moment data on pages 9 thru 17.

R
R

The example shows how to calculate :


the Y-arm moment with an allowance
the total fuel mass and moments
the lifting load, for an aircraft on a recovery with a MLG failure.

R
R

If the aircraft, has a LH MLG failure, it will rest on the LH engine with
the fuselage horizontal. The aircraft will be recovered from this position.
The loads acting on the aircraft with a LH MLG failure are shown in Fig.2.

To calculate the load needed to lift the LH wing, take moments about the RH
MLG.

Also put the lifting load at the beginning of this equation :


Lifting load x Dim. to RH MLG = Aircraft Wt x Dim. to RH MLG + Total fuel
Moment

This will give :


Equation 3 :
Lifting load =

Aircraft Wt x Dim. to RH MLG + Total Fuel Moment


Dim. to RH MLG

2-33
Page 3
JAN 01/96
Printed in France

AIRCRAFT RECOVERY MANUAL

The example used is for a (A330-300) aircraft with the fuel tanks full,
when the MLG failure happens.
R
R
R
R

To take moments about the RH MLG :


make an allowance to the moment arm shown in the mass and data sheets
(because the moment arm is taken about the aircraft centerline)
compile a table to record the calculations made.
To make the allowance add together these figures :
the dimension from the RH MLG to the centerline of the aircraft
the Y-moment arm which is found in pages 9 thru 17.

The table to compile will include all the remaining fuel in the tanks with
mass and moment calculations.

The table compiled in this example is shown in Table 4.


In the table all moments about the RH MLG in a clockwise direction are
shown with a positive sign. All moments about the RH MLG in the opposite
direction are shown with a negative sign.

R
R
R
R

To compile Table 4, read the correct mass and data for the remaining fuel
in the tank. These figures are found in the data sheets, pages 9 thru 17.
Enter these figures for the fuel mass and the Y-arm moment in columns 3
and 4, of Table 4.

Calculate the values of the Y-arm in column 5. To do this revise the


moment arm so that it equals the dimension of the Y-arm of the fuel in
each tank. The new moment arm will now equal the dimension between these
positions :
the remaining fuel in each tank
and the point about which the moments are taken.

To get the fuel moment in each tank multiply together the information that
follows :
the fuel mass in each tank
the Y-arm dimension in column 5.

R
R

Now put together all the figures in column 6 to get a Total Fuel Moment.
Make sure that both the positive and negative signs are used before the
figures.

In the Maintenance Facility Planning Manual (MFP Section 3-10, 3-14)


A330-300, the information that follows is given:
the dimension from the aircraft centerline to the Jacking Point
= 8.511 m
the dimension from the aircraft centerline to the MLG centerline
= 5.342 m.

2-33

R

Now calculate the lifting load which should be applied by pneumatic lifting
bags. These are fitted adjacent to the LH Jacking Point.

Use equation N3 to calculate this load.


Lifting load = Aircraft Wt x Dim. from RH MLG to Aircraft C/L + Total Fuel Moment
Dim. from RH MLG to LH Jacking Point

R
R

= 126381 5.342 + 410473.94


13.853
Lifting load = 78365.79 kg

R 4. Calculations for Removed Fuel


R
R

When fuel is drained from the tanks, the load needed to lift the aircraft is
decreased. The fuel moment will also be decreased.

The fuel to be drained in the tanks has a mass moment sign of a minus.
The fuel loads in these tanks act directly against the lifting load.

R
R

Because the aircraft has a MLG failure, there is a quantity of fuel that will
remain in the tanks (Ref. Table 3). Include this fuel to make the fuel moment
calculations.

There are two methods which can be used to drain fuel from the tanks. These
are :
by a pressure defuel
by a suction defuel.

In Table 1, information is given on :


the refuel/defuel pumps in use
the position of the crossfeed valves
the defuel rates in liters/min.
Table 2 provides information on the defuel rates for each type of fuel tank.
The defuel rates in Tables 1 and 2 are those when one hose is connected to a
refuel/defuel coupling.

DEFUELING
1. General
R
R

This topic deals with defuelling of the -300 and -200 models of the A330
aircraft. It is not possible to provide all the configurations or the
conditions of a damaged aircraft. Therefore specific operations to defuel the
aircraft before recovery, can not be given. In some conditions it will be
necessary to use the procedures given in the Aircraft Maintenance Manual
(AMM).
The preparation and description that follows is made at Post Mod. 40176. This
optional modification introduces a refuel/defuel coupling in the LH wing.

R
R

The A330-200 model is fitted with an optional center tank in the center
section of the aircraft.
2. Precautions

R
R

R
R
R
R

Before you start to defuel the aircraft you must make sure that :
the safety zone (Ref. Fig. 1) is identified to prevent the entry of persons
that are not necessary to the defuel operation
all equipment and materials that are not necessary for the defuel operation
are moved out of the safety zone
the safety and the fire fighting equipment, and the personnel approved to
operate it, are in place
the fuel tankers are in the correct position
the escape lanes for the fuel tankers are clear
the fuel tankers have sufficient capacity to defuel the aircraft
the aircraft and fuel tankers are grounded correctly
you use only the electrical equipment necessary for the defuel operation
you do not operate the aircraft main engines or the APU during the defuel
operation
the electrical equipment that you use will not cause a spark
caps are installed on all damaged fuel pipes
damaged electrical wiring and fuel pumps are isolated
you use only fuel pumps that are serviceable
do not do a defuel procedure in bad weather conditions, lightning is
dangerous
do not operate radio or radar equipment during the defuel operation
immediately flush away with water, or remove, fuel spillage.
3. Preparation (Ref. Figs. 2 and 3)
A. Put the access platforms in position, below the access panels 522HB and
622HB.
B. Open the panels 522HB and 622HB.
C. Remove the refuel/defuel coupling caps from the refuel/defuel couplings.
D. Make sure that the couplings of the fuel supply hoses are clean.
E. Connect the fuel supply hoses to the refuel/defuel couplings.

2-34
Page 1
JAN 30/98
Printed in France

AIRCRAFT RECOVERY MANUAL


F. Open the access panel 198DB in the RH belly fairing.
CAUTION :

THE GROUND POWER UNIT (GPU) MUST NOT BE CONNECTED TO THE


AIRCRAFT IF THE DEFUEL OPERATION IS TO BE DONE WITHOUT
ELECTRICAL POWER.

CAUTION : THE AIRCRAFT ELECTRICAL SYSTEM MUST NOT BE ENERGIZED, IF THE


DEFUEL OPERATION IS TO BE DONE WITHOUT ELECTRICAL POWER.
G. If necessary, and if it is safe to do so, put the GPU in a position as
far from the aircraft as possible. The GPU must have 3 phases, with 115
volts at 400 Hz and supply 20 KVA.
H. If necessary, and if it is safe to do so, connect the GPU to the aircraft
and energize the aircraft electrical system.
I. If necessary, start the Electronic Instrument System (EIS) and the
Electronic Centralized Aircraft Monitoring (ECAM).
4. Defuel (Ref. Figs. 2 and 3)
In the leading edge of both LH and RH wings there is a refuel/defuel
coupling. This is the interface between the refuel/defuel system and the
external source.
Each refuel/defuel coupling can have two refuel/defuel hoses connected to it.
The aircraft can then be defueled through one or more of the refuel/defuel
adaptors.
CAUTION : IF ONLY ONE REFUEL/DEFUEL COUPLING IS USED IT MUST BE THE ONE
IDENTIFIED USE THIS ADAPTOR TO DEFUEL.
There are two ways to defuel an aircraft. These are :
with a pressure defuel (the aircraft fuel-pumps supply the fuel pressure
for the defuel)
with a suction defuel (the external defuel source supplies the suction to
remove the fuel).
These two ways can be used at the same time to increase the defuel rate.
When the aircraft is at the usual lateral and longitudinal angles, gravity
will act upon the fuel in the tanks. At these angles most of the fuel in the
tanks can be removed.
Fuel will move from the trim tank into the fuel gallery. From the fuel
gallery it will move to the refuel/defuel couplings and out of the aircraft.

The defuel can be done in these electrical conditions :


an electrical GPU connected to the aircraft electrical system
the aircraft batteries or the APU connected to the aircraft electrical
system
no aircraft electrical power available.

2-34
Page 2
JAN 30/98
Printed in France

AIRCRAFT RECOVERY MANUAL


In the condition of, when no aircraft electrical power is available, you must
remove the electrical actuators and operate the fuel valves manually. You can
then power the fuel pumps with an independent electrical supply and a wiring
harness.
You cannot start a pressure defuel unless all the wing inlet valves are closed.
This prevents the possibility of a tank overflow, because the inner tanks have
no fuel hi-level sensor protection during a defuel. It is only possible to
R pressure defuel the inner fuel tanks and the optional center tank. To defuel the
R other fuel tanks, the fuel must first be moved to the inner tanks or the
R optional center tank.
To fully defuel the trim tank in the Trimmable Horizontal Stabilizer it must be
R set to the zero position. The Fuel Control and Monitoring System (FCMS) prevents
R a defuel of the wing tanks until the trim tank is empty.

6. Procedure to Drain the Remaining Fuel (Ref. Fig. 9)
When you have defueled an aircraft you will still have a quantity of fuel
in the tanks. This fuel is the remaining fuel (unusable) that you cannot
remove with a defuel.
R

A. Drain the unusable fuel that you cannot remove with a defuel
WARNING : AIRCRAFT FUEL IS POISONOUS.
DO NOT GET THE FUEL IN YOUR EYES OR MOUTH.
DO NOT GET THE FUEL ON YOUR SKIN FOR A LONG TIME.
(1) Make sure that the fuel tank to be drained has been defuelled to
the unusable fuel level.
(2) If necessary, put an access platform below the applicable water
drain valve.

(3) Put a container with a minimum capacity of 200l (53 US gal) below
the water drain valve.
(4) Put the hose in the container and install the drain tool in the
water drain valve.
(5) Operate the drain tool to open the water drain valve.
(6) To prevent any leakage, continuously monitor the fuel flow into
the container.
(7) When the fuel flow stops, operate the drain tool to close the
water drain valve.
(8) Remove the drain tool from the water drain valve.
(9) Discard the drained fuel, (you must refer to your local disposal
regulations).

REMOVAL OF PAYLOAD
01. General
Removal of the payload is necessary to reduce aircraft weight for recovery.
In passenger aircraft, the removal of baggage/cargo containers, cargo
pallets and bulk cargo must be considered. It is assumed, for the purposes
of this publication, that the total payload is to be removed. This section
includes removal of containers/pallets and other Unit Load Devices (ULD)
from the aircraft.
If the aircraft has come to rest on an unpaved or soft surface, access to
the aircraft with normal loaders, transporters and other vehicles with small
wheels and low ground clearances may be a major difficulty. In this
particular case, Pierced Steel Plank (PSP) type surfaces may be an
advantage.
With the aircraft in a nose-down attitude, the AFT cargo compartment door
may be higher than the type of loader available can reach. For access in
this instance, fork-lift type vehicles may be of use.
If the aircraft attitude is such that the cargo compartment doors are lower
than normal container and pallet transporter vehicles may be close enough to
the desired height to permit direct unloading. Alternatively, standard
container or pallet conveyor equipment may be used.
Removal of containers and/or pallets from the aircraft will in most cases
have to be done manually, due to lack of electrical power supply for the
cargo loading system. Upward or downward movement of the aircraft about the
longitudinal or lateral axes, or a combination of both, may be expected
during unloading, dependent on the at-rest attitude of the aircraft and on
the location of a specific container or pallet in the cargo compartment.
A block and tackle or other tensioning equipment may be used to pull
containers upwards or to restrain them when being lowered. If a rope is
used, it can be looped around the container and the opposite end anchored
around the side guide tie-down attachment. Pallets may also be removed by
this method, provided that they can withstand the strain of a rope loop. If
not, it is advisable to unload the pallet piece by piece. If there is a
considerable height difference between the door threshold and the loading
equipment, restraint from inside and a pulling force from outside may be
necessary. Pulling may be achieved by means of a block and tackle anchored
to the loading vehicle, a tractor with a rope of suitable strength or by
means of a vehicle equipped with a winch. It is possible that damage to
containers may result when using this method.
Bulk cargo may be removed from any of the cargo compartments by any of the
methods previously mentioned or by manhandling, if the weight of these items
permits. For aircraft which have load thru capability, large items of bulk
cargo which have been loaded thru the AFT cargo compartment into the Bulk
cargo compartment must be unloaded the same way. The divider net must first
be released and any latches lowered which are in the way of cargo.

2. FWD, AFT and Bulk Cargo Compartment Doors Operating Instructions
A. General
The following instructions detail various methods of gaining access to
the FWD, AFT and Bulk cargo compartments. For this purpose it must be
assumed that electrical and hydraulic power is not available and that the
doors cannot be opened in the normal way. If access can be gained to the
right-hand side of the belly fairing, it may be possible to open the FWD
and AFT cargo compartment doors using the hand pump.
B. Open the FWD and AFT cargo compartment door using the hand pump (Ref. AMM
TASK 52-30-00-010-802).
C. Open the FWD or AFT cargo compartment door when the hydraulic system is
defective (Ref. AMM TASK 52-30-00-010-804).
D. Open the Bulk cargo compartment door (Ref. AMM TASK 52-30-00-010-803).
3. Manual Unloading of the FWD and AFT Cargo Compartment (Fig. 1 and 2)
A. The following instructions refer to the unlatching and positioning of
containers and pallets prior to their removal from the cargo
compartments. No attempt is made to provide firm rules for removal
procedures, as these will largely depend on the attitude of the aircraft
at rest. However, the notes contained in Paragraph 1. General, should be
of assistance in determining the method to be employed.
WARNING : CONTAINERS AND PALLETS MUST BE RESTRAINED BEFORE RELEASING
LATCHES IF CARGO COMPARTMENT FLOOR IS NOT LEVEL. SEE 1.
GENERAL.
Refer to the Cargo Loading Manual (CLS) for the method of raising and

TETHERING
1. General
A. During lifting operations of a damaged aircraft, in which cranes, jacks,
and/or inflatable bags are used, the aircraft should be tethered to
prevent horizontal shifting due to lifting side forces, (weight of the
aircraft, wing forces, etc...). Tethers can be attached to fabric slings
passed around the fuselage or the engine pylons or to different fittiangs
such as pylon hoist fittings, fuselage fittings and vertical stabilize
fittings.
B. To ensure satisfactory horizontal stability, aircraft tethering cables
should be secured to heavy vehicles or to deadmen fixed firmly in the
ground ; the tethers should lead at various angles to the fuselage center
line so that aircraft shifting in any direction is prevented. Figure 1
shows a typical installation which might be used.
C. A tensioning device should be provided for each tethering line so that a
steady but no excessive tethering action is maintained throughout the
lifting operation.
D. The number of tethers will vary with the type of recovery operation and
according to wind strength and direction. Figure 2 shows approximately the
forces exerted on the aircraft according to their magnitude and direction.
2. Tethering
A. Using straps and/or cables
If tethering fittings are not availablem or if it is impossible to install
them, the aircraft can be tethered with straps or cables passed around the
engine pylons and the fuselage main frames on which the slings secured to
the ground will be fitted. In this case, it is necessary to protect the
fuselage with pylwood sheets covered with thick padding at places where
cables or straps are in contact with the fuselage. The fuselage frames
capable of bearing these loads are frames 17, 36, 59 and 76.

Figure 3 shows positions on the airplane at which fittings can be
installed.
On the fuselage, fitting attachment points are blanked off by screws which
must be removed.
WARNING THE SAME FITTING MUST NOT BE USED TO TETHER AND LIFT THE AIRPLANE
AT THE SAME TIUME ; THE STRESSES IMPOSED ON THE STRUCTURE WOULD BE
TOO SEVERE.

LIFTING DAMAGED AIRCRAFT
This section describes the ways and means to lift the aircraft by means of
either inflatable bags (3-26) or hydraulic jacks (3-27) or by using the
auxiliary jacking points (3-28) in the various configuration listed below :
Nose gear retracted, collapsed or lost (3-21)
Main gear retracted, collapsed or lost (3-22)
One main gear retracted, collapsed or lost (3-23)
Nose gear and either left or right hand main gear retracted, collapsed or lost
(3-24)
All gears retracted, collapsed or lost (3-25)

3-20

AIRCRAFT RECOVERY MANUAL


NOSE GEAR RETRACTED, COLLAPSED OR LOST
01. General
In all probability, the aircraft will be resting on the main gears, the
engine nacelles, and on the nose gear door area at the lower forward part of
the fuselage, the front jack pad being probably damaged (ref. Figure 1). The
most obvious lifting methods consist in :
Lifting the aircraft at FR17 with a strap, a cross bar and crane,
Lifting the aircraft at FR17 by means of 2 special fittings either with
jacks, or with a crane, a cross bar and 2 slings,
Lifting the aircraft with inflatable bags placed under the fuselage.
Any combination of the above 3 methods.
The choice of the lifting method depends on the weight and the aircraft
H-arm as computed in section 2 and the lifting means available.
It is obviously advisable to locate the H-arm as far back as possible in the
aircraft, but without tilting the aircraft on to the aft fuselage. The
tables included in this section give the reactions and lifting limitations
versus aircraft CG and weight. If the reaction is above the limitation, the
aircraft H-arm location can be moved by :
Reducing the weight of the aircraft by removing removable equipment.
WARNING : IN NO CIRCUMSTANCES MUST THE AIRCRAFT H-ARM LOCATION BE FURTHER
BACK THAN TBD.
02. Lifting
A. Using a strap aft of FR17, a cross bar and a crane.
Figure 2 gives the reactions at FR17 according to the weight, the
aircraft H-arm location and the lifting limitation by one strap.
Figure 3 gives the minimum dimensions of the strap and the approximate
height to which the aircraft must be lifted. The strap must obligatorily
be positioned immediately aft of FR17.
B. By means of two special fittings installed at FR17
Figure 4 shows a drawing of the fittings
(1) Using hydraulic jacks
Figure 5 gives ground clearances of the fitting jack pads, aircraft
on the ground and aircraft lifted.
Figure 2 gives the reactions at FR17 according to the weight and
aircraft H-arm and the lifting limitation by 2 jacks.
It is advisable to use jacks provided with a loadmeter.

AIRCRAFT RECOVERY MANUAL


NOTE : When the lifting is achieved by jacks, the variation of the
horizontal projection of the distance between the resting
points of the aircraft on the ground is 0.1 m (0.33 ft)
maximum ; if special articulated jacks are not available, it
is advisable to carry out the lifting operation in increments
by blocking and moving the jacks.
(2) Using two slings, a cross bar and a crane
Figure 6 gives the measurements of the cross bar, the slings and the
height from the ground of the Reference Fuselage Datum (RFD) of the
aircraft when lifted.
Figure 2 gives the reaction at FR17 according to the weight and
aircraft H-arm and the limitation of lifting with two slings.
It is advisable to use slings provided with a loadmeter.
C. Using inflatable bags
Using of inflatable bags is covered in section 3-26. As the zones which
rest on the bags will be practically touching the ground, it will be
necessary to pre-lift using one of the methods mentioned above, in order
to be able to slide the bags under the fuselage ; however, if consistency
of the ground so allows, a trench may be dug out under the aircraft.

MAIN GEARS RETRACTED, COLLAPSED OR LOST
01. General
The aircraft rests on the engine nacelles and the aft fuselage (Fig. 1).
The most obvious methods of lifting the aircraft consist in :
Using hydraulic jacks,
Using inflatable bags.
Whatever the method used, a jack will be placed at the front jack pad ; the
nose gear is not necessarily in contact with the ground as its position
depends on the damage to the engine nacelles.
02. Lifting
A. Using hydraulic jacks
Section 3-27 covers lifting with hydraulic jacks and gives the
information required for their utilisation ; it also gives the
permissible loads and the location of the jacking points.
The height of the wing jack pads from the ground when the aircraft is on
the ground can vary from 2.30 m (7.5 ft) to 3.30 m (10.8 ft)
this height depends on the degree of damage to the engine nacelles.
The height of the wing jack pads when the aircraft is lifted is about
5.8 m (19.0 ft).
B. Using inflatable bags
Section 3-26 covers utilisation of inflatable bags and gives the
necessary instructions for use.
For aircraft lifting, it is preferable to place 2 bags on each side of
the aircraft between the fuselage and the engine pylon taking care not to
place bags under the jack pads.

ONE MAIN GEAR RETRACTED, COLLAPSED OR LOST
01. General
In all probability, the aircraft will be resting on the nose gear, on one of
the main gears and the engine nacelles of the damaged side (Fig. 1). The
aircraft may be in an unstable condition, depending on aircraft H-arm
location, with a risk of tilting backwards on to the aft fuselage. The first
step is therefore to place inflatable bags under the aft fuselage (Ref.
section 3-26).
These bags must be deflated as the down wing is raised, to avoid excessive
stress on the aircraft skin.
Lifting methods consist in :
using hydraulic jacks under the lifting points.
using inflatable bags.
02. Lifting
A. Using hydraulic jacks
Section 3-27 covers lifting with hydraulic jacks and gives the
information required for this process. A jack will be placed under the
damaged wing jack pad. The height of the jack pad from the ground, when
the aircraft is on the ground, is about 3.6 m (11.8 ft), this height
depends on the degree of damage to the engine nacelles. The height of the
wing jack pad when the aircraft is lifted is about 5.8 m (19.0 ft) to
allow extension of the gear, if this is possible. The maximum load a wing
jack pad can bear is 73 700 daN. It is advisable to place jacks under the
two remaining jack pads.
B. Using inflatable bags
Section 3-26 covers utilisation of inflatable bags and gives the
necessary instructions for use. Two bags should be placed between the
fuselage and the engine the pylon ; two more should be placed beyond the
pylon.

MAIN GEAR RETRACTED, COLLAPSED OR LOST
01. General
The aircraft rests on the front lower part of the fuselage on the nose gear
doors, on the engine nacelles, and on the opposite main gear (Fig. 1) ; the
forward jack pad is probably damaged.
02. Lifting
For reason of structural resistance, the lifting operation must be done in
two stages :
1) Lift the aircraft under the wing of the damaged side, following the
procedure described in section 3-23.
The height of the wing jack pad from the ground when the aircraft is on
the ground, is about 4.30 m (14.1 ft).
2) Lift the aircraft by the forward fuselage, following the procedure
described in section 3-21.
Note : By using this method, further damage to the aircraft will be avoided,
and less personnel will be required for the lifting operation than if
the aircraft was lifted under the wing and forward fuselage
simultaneously.

01. General
The aircraft rests on the engine nacelles and on the aft lower part of the
fuselage (ref. Figure 1).
The most obvious lifting methods consist in :

Using inflatable bags.
02. Lifting
A. Using hydraulic jacks
Section 3-27 covers lifting with hydraulic jacks and gives the
information required for their utilisation ; it also gives the
permissible loads and the position of the jacking points. It is advisable
to use jacks provided with loadmeters.
The height of the wing jack pads from the ground when the aircraft is on
the ground is about 2.9 m (9.5 ft), the height of the forward jack pad
from the ground is about 3.40 m (11.1 ft) These dimensions are given only
as an indication since they depend on the degree of damage to the engine
nacelles.
The height of the jack pads when the aircraft is lifted, is about 4.37 m
(14.3 ft) for the forward jack pad and 5.8 m (19 ft) for the wing jack
pads ; these heights allow the gears to be extended if this is possible.
B. Using inflatable bags
Section 3-26 covers utilisation of the inflatable bags and gives the
necessary instructions for use.
Place 2 bags under the forward fuselage aft of FR26.
Place two bags on each side of the aircraft, under the wings, between
the fuselage and the internal engine pylon.
Depending on the weight of the aircraft, one or two more bags can be
placed under each wing outboard of the engine pylons ; in no
circumstances must the bags be placed under the jack pads, as this
would prevent positioning of the jacks.

LIFTING USING INFLATABLE BAGS
01. General
Lifting a damaged aircraft with inflatable bags is subject to a certain
number of specifications which must be scrupulously observed ; these
specifications are given in the "Specifications For Use" delivered by the
vendors with the equipment.
02. Use of Inflatable Bags
Figure 1 shows those undersurfaces of the aircraft capable of withstanding
on bagloads ; with bags inflated between 3.5 and 7 psi.
Figure 2 shows the positions at which bags may be placed (for example).
All bags are capable of lifting : See Page 3.
As this means of lifting is not stable, avoid covering the jack pads under
the wing in order to allow positioning of hydraulic jacks at the earliest
opportunity.

LIFTING WITH HYDRAULIC JACKS
01. General
Positioning of the jacks under the aircraft jack pads, shown in page 2, is
definitely the safest procedure for lifting a damaged aircraft. However some
general rules are to be observed.
The ground must be suitably prepared in order to provide a firm base for the
jacks.
When the aircraft is not level with the ground, the jack head moves through
an arc during lifting and generates side forces on the ball pads which could
cause accidents. In such cases, it is advisable to lift in increments,
shoring the aircraft and repositioning the jacks each time. However jacks
now exist with rams articulated on the base thus removing the risk of
accidents.
02. Lifting by Means of Jacks
The dimensions of the jacks pads are shown on page 4.
The aircraft height when it is on jacks are shown on page 5.

TOWING
1 General
The A330 is designed with means for conventional tractor towing.
It is possible to tow or push the aircraft, at maximum ramp weight with
engines at zero or up to idle thrust, using a tow bar attached to the nose
gear leg. The two bar fitting is installed at the front of the leg.
The main gears have attachments points for towing and debogging. These
attachment points are be able to be used to restrain the aircraft when the
engines are running at up to maximum thrust.
2 Approximate Towing Loads
Aircraft towing forces cannot be accurately calculated.
They can only be established through experience or testing.
For the A330 as for most aircraft, the following maximum values have been
set :
Breakaway on dry level concrete
To maintain rolling on level surface
Breakaway on slope

Note :
In all above formula, MTW = Maximum Taxi Weight.
When the aircraft is pushed rearward with the engines idling, the engine
thrust resistance must be added to the above formulae values.
Moreover, the following coefficients of friction between the tow tractor tires
and the ground have been adopted :

3 Limit Loads and Angles
R

The limit towing loads and angles are shown in page 4.


Whatever the towing arrangement used, the steering angle allowed on each
side of the aircraft centerline is 83 only when the nose wheel steering
desactivation electrical-box towing lever in towing position and locked with
a special pin.
The steering angle is limited to 40 during rearward pushing with the
engines at idle to avoid the possibility of NLG tire slippage.

TAXIING AND TOWING OF AIRCRAFT WITH DEFLATED TIRES
1. General
When you have deflated tires on an aircraft it will limit the movement you
can make on the ground.
The deflated tires can be on one or more of the Landing Gears. They can
limit the movement in these ways :
they limit the aircraft from being moved at taxiing speed on certain
nose-wheel steering angles
they limit the aircraft from being towed at the maximum towing angles.
There are two methods which you can use to move an aircraft these are :
with its own power (taxiing)
with a tow (towing).
2. Taxiing Using Two Engines (Ref. Figure 1).
In figure 1, you will find three different Landing Gear configurations with
deflated tires. These are found on Curves A, B and C. Figure 1 also shows
these configurations with the maximum nose-wheel steering angle at different
aircraft speeds.
A. Yous must look at Curve A, if any one tire is deflated on one or more
landing Gears.
You are permitted a maximum of three deflated tires for each aircraft,
this is a maximum of one for each Landing Gear.
If you have more than three deflated tires you must look at another
curve.
When you look at Curve A, the maximum steering angle that you are
permitted is 65 deg.
B. You must look at Curve B if you have one deflated tire on each axle of
one or both Main Landing Gears together with :
one Nose Gear deflated tire.
You are permitted a maximum of five deflated tires for each aircraft.
There must not be more than one deflated tire on any axle.
If you have more than five deflated tires you must look at a different
curve.
When you look at Curve B the maximum steering angle that you are
permitted is 65 deg.

AIRCRAFT RECOVERY MANUAL


C. You must look at Curve C, if you have three deflated tires on one or both
Main Landing Gears together with :
one Nose Gear deflated tire.
You are permitted a maximum of seven deflated tires, but there must be at
least one inflated tire on each Landing Gear.
When you look at Curve C, the maximum steering angle that you are
permitted is 50 deg.
NOTE : You must not use the nose wheel steering if all four tires on the
same Main Gear are deflated.
In these configurations you must also limit the aircraft speed to
2.5 m/s.
3. Towing
When you tow an aircraft with deflated tires you must refer to the
configurations that follow.
These configurations prevent the aircraft from being towed as usual.
A. You can tow an aircraft by the Nose Gear if any one tire is deflated on
one or more Landing Gears.
You are permitted a maximum of three deflated tires for each aircraft.
You can tow an aircraft by the Nose Gear when :
one of the Nose Gear tires is deflated (the maximum angular movement of
the towbar is 10 deg.).
both Nose Gear tires are inflated (the maximum angular movement of the
towbar is 40 deg.).
B. You can also tow an aircraft by the Nose Gear when :
any one tire or two tires (one on each axle) is deflated on any one Main
Gear
both Nose Gear tires are inflated (the maximum angular movement of the
tow bar is 10 deg).
C. You must tow an aircraft by the Main Gear if :
two tires on the same axle are deflated
or three tires on the same Main Gear are deflated.
When you tow an aircraft by the Main Gear, both Nose Gear tires must be
inflated.

AIRCRAFT RECOVERY MANUAL


In this configuration you must steer the aircraft by the Nose Gear or by
the normal steering-control. The maximum nose-wheel steering angle that
you are permitted is 50 deg.
D. You must tow the aircraft by the Main Gear if all four tires on the same
Main Gear are deflated
When you tow an aircraft by the Main Gear, both Nose Gear tires must be
inflated.
You must limit the aircraft speed to 1.3 m/s. When you tow the aircraft
in this configuration no angular movement of the towbar is permitted.

RETURNING UNDAMAGED AIRCRAFT TO RUNWAY
1. General
A. When, as a result of various circumstances, an aircraft has left the
runway, it may be partially or completely bogged. Probably there will be
no damage to the aircraft but other than normal towing is necessary to
turn the aircraft to the runway.
B. If only the main gear of one side is off the runway all fuel should be
removed or transferred from wing with bogged gear to opposite wing tank.
Refer to Aircraft Maintenance Manual for applicable fuel transfer
procedures.
C. Aircraft weight should be reduced as near as possible to the empty
equipped weight except for fuel in the case mentioned above.
D. In practically all cases, the runway or a major taxiway will be blocked
necessitating rapid clearance in order that the airport may resume
operations. Valuable time will be saved by planning the job to completion
before starting the operation.
2. Job Planning
Job Planning to completion should include the weight to be removed, condition
of terrain, direction aircraft is to be towed, equipment available to install
an emergency runway, tractors, hoists and towing vehicles available.
A. Determine whether it is necessary to lift the aircraft to strengthen the
ground under the wheels, and start digging to prepare ramps gently
inclined up to the ground level.
B. If the accident has been caused by malfunction of the brakes or of the
nose gear steering, take the necessary steps to free seized brakes or
locked steering.
C. Ensure that available vehicles are capable of towing the aircraft on the
ramps.
D. Prepare the ground in the direction chosen for towing. Fill the holes with
crushed rock or gravel. If the equipment necessary for an emergency runway
is not available, a track is to be constructed with timbers covered with
steel plates or plywood sheets.

AIRCRAFT RECOVERY MANUAL


E. Make sure that the method used is adapted to the nature of the terrain.
F. Ensure that a sufficient quantity of material is available to construct
foundations for ramps.
3. Return of Aircraft to Runway
Note : If the wheels have bogged down only to a depth of less than center of
axle and if they do not sink any further, it will not be necessary to
lift the airplane to strengthen the ground under the landing gear.
A. Starting from the gear, construct gently inclined ramps in the direction
chosen for towing ; these ramps should extend approximately one meter on
each side of the landing gear.
The depth an length of these ramps depend on the depth that gear is bogged
down.
Note : On extremely soft ground the channel will require additional
excavation and filling with resistant material (crushed rock or
gravel) to provide sufficient bearing strength.
B. Lay heavy timbers or railroad crossties crosswise in each channel. Cover
timbers or crossties with thick plywood sheets, steel sheets at least 6 mm
thick or 20 mm thick light alloy sheets.
Note : To have a firm channel bottom, two layers of plywood will be
placed, one accross the ramp, the other one lengthwise ; if
plywood isused in this manner, joints must be straggered to avoid
steps under load.
Station towing and winching vehicles on a concrete surface.
Tow airplane form main gear. See chapter 4-21 for towing procedures.
