Section 6. Jettisoning of External Stores
9-6-1 Jettisoning of External Stores
At locations where a drop area has been established for radar
assistance in jettisoning of external stores, provide vectoring service
upon request to:
1 - Where required, a mutually satisfactory drop area for the jettisoning
of external stores will be determined by radar equipped towers and centers
in cooperation with the local USAF units, Air Division, or civil operators
and civil aircraft companies concerned.
2 - FAA and Headquarters, USAF, have agreed to allow FAA facilities
to vector USAF, Air Force Reserve, and Air National Guard aircraft for
jettisoning of all external stores; i.e., tip tanks, JATO racks, special
weapons, etc. Any similar vectoring service given to civil operators and
civil aircraft companies operating Air Force type aircraft requires written
agreement between the FAA and the user to relieve the FAA of possible liability.
The regional counsel's office acts for FAA in executing this agreement.
a. USAF, ANG, and Air Force Reserve aircraft at any time.
b. Civil operators and civil aircraft when a written agreement
is in effect for your location.
