Abstract:

The series of tests reported had two objectives -- a to gather technical data needed to evaluate the ground and ditching characteristics of the C-9A aeromedical aircraft and b to obtain data necessary for revising and updating specifications and the new AFSC Design Handbook, System Safety, DH 1-6, to provide better emergency escape potential for future aircraft. An important secondary benefit realized from these tests was the development of better medical training procedures for handling the wounded during ground and ditching emergencies. Author
