Over Age Items. During any inspection, or at any time that an item is found to be over age (i.e.,
shelf/service-life has expired as specified in TB 43-0002-43), the item will be removed from service,
condemned, and tagged, in accordance with DA PAM 738-751.
Conservation of Resources. To conserve time and labor, and to avoid evacuation to a direct support
maintenance activity, unit/detachment commanders may designate, in writing, rigger personnel to
accomplish classification inspection of over age air delivery equipment and the classification of Beyond
Inspection Function Requirement. Normally, air delivery equipment maintenance personnel at a
packing, rigging, or repair activity will perform a technical/rigger-type inspection. The inspection of initial
