The re-evaluation results are 1 ground support equipment requirements are essentially the same as outlined for the Phase I proposal additional equipment includes a maintenance run-up sound suppressor, accessory drive removal and installation equipment, an articulated nose sling, and fuel tank thermal insulation repair equipment 2 the model 733-290 configuration is compatible with the fifteen airports designated by the FAA with minor modifications to fixed facilities required in some cases 3 servicing times are 30 minutes at enroute stations and 55 minutes at origin and turn-around stations servicing actions and servicing equipment are the same as discussed in the Phase I proposal.
