EXTRACTION LINE PANEL PROCEDURES FOR C-17 GLOBEMASTER III 0018 00
STOWING 120/140-FOOT SIX LOOP EXTRACTION LINE TO EXTRACTION
LINE PANEL WITH EXTRACTION LINE BRIDLE ATTACHED
Throughout this task the terms Right, Left, Upper, Lower, Clockwise,
Counterclockwise, Top and Bottom indicate directions as viewed by the
Rigger, standing at the Tension Board end of a parachute pack table looking
toward the apex end. When two Extraction Line Panels are laced together, the
item then takes the noun nomenclature of Extraction Line Bag.
Use the same procedures to stow the 120 FT as the 140 FT Line Bag. There
will be two less stows with the 120 FT Line Bag.
1. Attach Extraction Bridle to Extraction Line Panels.
a. Place one Extraction Line Panel on packing table or other suitable surface with stow loops
facing up and running lengthwise. Place second panel on top of first panel with stow loops facing
down (figure 1).

b. Using nine connector links, attach six to the double end webs of extraction bridle-to-bridle
attachment loops located on upper end of each panel. Attach three connector links to parachute
attaching webs of extraction bridle (figure 2).
