A laboratory test was performed on a model A-6A airframe to determine whether the airframe could sustain the arrestment loads associated with 2000 arrestments at an increased gross weight of 36,000 pounds. The Navy Model NEA6-A, BUNO 149935, used as a test speciment, sustained 4000 arrestment test cycles with no major failures satisfying a service life of 2000 arrestments at a gross weight of 36,000 pounds.
