If an A/C has hot brakes where should it be parked and why?
In an isolated place to allow cooling in ambient air.
How should you approach an A/C with hot brakes and why?
From fore and aft. The rims may explode.
If it is necessary spray a hot brake down what should you use and where should it be concentrated?
Water fog only and on the brake side of the wheel.

To minimize further damage to A/C parts due to a crash, saltwater or firefighting agents.
What is the first thing the Emergency Reclamation Team ensures?
That the A/C is safe for maintenance.
After safety is ensured what must the Emergency Reclamation Team then do?
Open, loosen, or remove covers/access panels. Drain saltwater if possible. Remove contaminants with fresh water. Remove and catalog components form affected areas.
When the Emergency Reclamation Team is removing and processing components what references should they be using?
The Command Priority List and the NA 01-1A-509.
In regards to the hydraulic systems how are they pressurized, independently or together?
Independently. Port and Starboard.
When the wing flaps are in the up position and the hydraulic system is being depressurized what safety precaution must be adhered to?
Make sure all personnel and equipment are clear.
Before pressurizing the hydraulic system what must be clear of obstructions and personnel/
Thrust reversers, flaps,spoilers, elevators, rudder, forward upper cargo door, leading edge slats, rudder pedals, and control columns.
To prevent the wheel from collapsing underneath the A/C what must be done before depressurizing the hydraulic system?
Make sure the landing gear control is in the down position and that the landing gear lockpins have been installed.
