Abstract:

The feasibility of using pin and cone devices in conjunction with supporting air bags for final alignment and latching of weapons to carrier-based aircraft was investigated. Weapons loading tests were conducted at the NADC Bomb Rack Testing Facility where a Multiple Ejector Rack loaded with inert MK-81 bombs was successfully aligned and latched to an Ejector Bomb Rack. The feasibility of the pin and cone concept was established. Author
