what emergency shore base recovery equipment is designed to stop aircraft not equipped with tailhooks

MA1A


the E5 chaintype arresting gear has two deck pendents of equal length streched across the runway, how far apart are they spaced?

30ft


who installs the deadman anchors located 15ft from the side of the runway?

public works personnel
or civilian contractor 

the deadman anchor must be able to withstand how many pounds acting along the tensioning pendant from the anchor to be acceptable?

a minimum load of 10,000LBS


the E5MOD 1 and E5MOD 3 field emergency chain arresting gear arresting cables are shaped by the use of what?

retention hooks that are bolted to the runway


how many deadman anchors are required for the E5MOD 1 and MOD 3 field emergency chain arresting gear?

only one deadman anchor on each side of the runway


why should highly refelective colors not be used along the edge of the runway or on the runway chains?

because they might distract the poilt


what determine the maximum aircraft runout capability on the emergency chain arresting gear?

the chain length and its weight


what gives the recommended minimum chain configurations for operating with a/c weighing above or below 30,000LBS?

an emergency chain arresting gear bulletin


what is the main factor considered when a location is being selected for installtion of field emergency arresting gear?

the runout requirement


when the chain arresting gear is being used what is the recommended runway length in feet for an A3 aircraft?

2,300FT


the E28 arresting engines use what principle to dissipate the kinetic energy of the landing aircraft?

rotary hydraulic


during an arrestment how many pounds of tape tension are required to release mechanism on the E28 arresting gear?

6,0006,500 LBS


what source powers the retrieving system of the E28 arresting gear?

gasoline engines


what is the minimum number of wire supports per deck pendants on the chain arrest gear?

eight


the deck pendant on the E5 chain gear may be inspected in the installed position under what condition?

when the engaging speed is less than 100 knots and the a/c runout distance is less than 500ft


when should you remove both arresting cables and thoroughly inspect them for deformation and wear?

when the engaging speed is from 100150knots and the a/c runout distance is over 500ft


what is the primary and secondary method used to measure aircraft runout and the length of chain pullout for the E5 arresting gear?

primary= painted marks on the runway
secondary=painted marks on the chain 

what will the runout distance normally be?

twice the chain length plus 1/2 the arresting cable length


how should one decide the maximum chain length that should be used for a given available runout area?

available runout length
subtract 1/2 the arresting cable length, then divide the remainder by 2
