Abstract:

The installation of a Sheaffer spring type arresting hook on a Boeing model 720 aircraft was subjected to an 18-day program of static, dynamic, and in-flight tests. The action of the hook and the installations structural resistance to loading, which were satisfactorily demonstrated in the limited Boeing 720 aircraft arresting hook static and dynamic tests, were within the design parameters. It is concluded that this proven hook installation is qualified, subject to hook shoe modification, for gross weight Boeing 720 aircraft arrestment tests with an appropriate arresting gear. Author
