Aircraft palletized configuraions for transport of the HonestJohn M480 container in the C-130, C-133, and C-141 aircraft were designed and tested. As a result it was found that two containers per pallet will not meet the acceptance criteria for the C-130 and C-133 aircraft. A lack of available floor tiedown fittings restricts the palletized configuration to one M480 container per pallet in the above mentioned aircraft. Two containers per pallet will meet the acceptance criteria for the C-141 aircraft. The developed tiedown configurations, test procedures, test data, and notations of test observations are presented.
