Now let me correct myself Matt. I should have said PART 125- Certification and operations: Airplanes having a seating capacity of 20m or more passengers or a maximum payload capacity of 6,000 pounds or more. A funny thing happened on the way to the forum. As I was reading over part 125 I came across this statement in 125.207 Emergency equipment requirements. (a) No person may operate an airplane having a seating capacity of 20 or more passengers unless it is equiped with the following emergency equipment: (2) A crash axe carried so as to be accessible to the crew but inaccessible to passengers during normal operations. NOTE!!! this is according to the copy of the FAR's that I have at home that is dated 1990. So the "125.207" might be 125 something else.
They are also still FAR required equipment on civilian airport crash trucks. Don't know if the military still carries them but I'd expect that they still do.
They make as good an ingress tool as they are an egress tool.
Sorry I didn't get across what I was trying to say, Adler.
I did see your post and what I had intended to say was that I don't know if the military still carries them on crash trucks but since they are still on aircraft I'd expect that they do.
I should have written it that way to begin with. I guess the context parsed better knowing what I intended than for somebody reading it cold.
Adler, it is also true that when adrenalin kicks in you can fit through a hole smaller than you would normaly.
4 out of 5 voices in my head say I am normal. Majority rules.
You're just jealous because the voices only talk to me.
