A laboratory fatigue test was performed on a C-2A airframe to determine whether the airframe could sustain the effects of 3000 arrested landings. A total of 6000 arrested landing cycles were applied to the airframe during the test with no structural failures. With a test scatter factor of 2, the 600 test cycles are equivalent to 3000 service arrested landings. Author
