4-45. AIR SHIPMENT OF SEMITRAILER (cont)
LOADING PROCEDURE (cont)
7. Remove eight cotter pins, nuts, washers and screws securing dolly assembly.
Insert mounting hardware in
mounting holes and secure nuts, finger tight.
8. Disconnect both air hoses and the 24-volt plug from the subbase. Make certain that the 24-volt cable assembly
and the air hoses are properly stowed before attempting any skid loading.
Personnel at this point should stay clear of the underside of the semitrailer until it is
securely resting on the K-loader.
9. Using loading jacks, lift van body rear end (both
sides at the same time) to a height permitting
removal of dolly toward the rear. Make certain
loading Jacks do not deviate from the
perpendicular. Should this occur, stop lifting
operation, reposition Jacks, and repeat lifting
order to move dolly freely. Pull dolly toward the
rear from underneath van body and set it aside
for aircraft loading.
11. Move the K-loader under the van body, making
sure that van body skid rails are matching the
roller beds of the K-loader, leaving the aircraft
loading equipment storage areas accessible.
