Abstract:

The landing field is destroyed as one uses unpaved airfields. The runway surface should be packed down and the tracks closed up. Experience has shown that closing deep tracks with the 2-bladed plow sharply improves the productivity and quality of work. Expenditures of time and resources on repairing damaged portions of the landing field are reduced two to three times when employing the plow. It is especially effective on airfields where intensive flying is carried out. The tractor-mounted, 2-bladed plow is easy to use, simple in design and can be produced by repair workshops.
