THE AIR CARGO ENVIRONMENT HAZARDS
In The Aircraft
-Fore-and-aft pressures are exerted on cargo during takeoff and landing. Compression forces are exerted during rough landings.
-Rough or "bumpy" flight conditions subject cargo to rapid alternating vertical movements, imposing heavier pressure one moment, and almost weightless conditions the next.
-As altitude increases, atmospheric pressure decreases, subjecting liquid cargo to leakage hazards and pressurized cargo to increased internal pressure.
- Aircraft cargo compartment temperatures normally range between 30°F and 70°F (-1°C and 21°C). However, cargo aboard an aircraft parked in freezing or very hot weather will be subjected to unusual cold or heat conditions.
- The main cargo compartments of air freighters are normally well equipped for adequate stowage. Passenger aircraft belly compartments, however, are often loaded with limited cargo restraint equipment permit-ting the possibility of movement during flight and inviting damage from adjacent cargo.
