Disassembling the major components. The basic disassembly of the type V and dual row airdrop
platform is achieved by reversing the procedures used for assembly. However, due to the unique minor
components of the dual row airdrop platform, specific disassembly procedures are provided.
1. Disassemble the Dual Row Airdrop Platform as follows:
a. Platform Preparation. Place the platform on the dedicated assembly area so that the installation
holes on the two panels with outriggers installed are accessible from the bottom of the platform.
Outrigger mast assemblies cannot stand on their own. All
personnel must stand clear of the path of the fall of the mast
assemblies during disassembly of outrigger masts.
b. Releasing Outrigger Masts. Three personnel are required for this task.
One person stands between the upright outrigger mast assemblies and holds them in
place by the handles. A second person releases the CGU-1B cargo tie down strap holding
the mast assemblies together.
While one-person holds one mast assembly upright, two people lower the other mast
assembly into the mast cradle on the link, retracting the knob handles.
Two persons then lower the second mast assembly into the second mast cradle.
