New equipment and procedures used to recover damaged or disabled aircraft from operational areas of airports are described. Progress in aircraft recovery has been achieved mainly through the recent availability of equipment specially designed to lift and remove particular aircraft. Attention is given to the use and design of air-bag lifting systems, recovery jacks, and general costly equipment maintained by the airports rather than airlines.
