Mechanics, ground support mishaps shouldn’t happen if you’re doing things by the book—that is by applicable maintenance manuals and TM 1-1500-204-23-1 (Jul 92).

Guesswork or shortcuts should never be part of towing an aircraft. It leads to accidents and unscheduled maintenance. Page 13 of Flightfax 5 (Apr 22) has some great info on ground movements, proper aircraft towing, pushing aircraft and what’s needed to qualify as a towing operator. Read it to avoid millions of dollars in damage and an aircraft that’s non-mission capable because it needs repairs. Check out the Flightfax article HERE.
