Chain Gang

Air & Space Smithsonian - - In The Museum -

A plane cap­tain (op­po­site) is re­spon­si­ble for mak­ing sure his air­craft is mis­sion­ready and for se­cur­ing it—with six tie-down chains—once it has re­turned and been pushed to a park­ing spot. The cap­tains clean the chains to re­move salt spray, ad­just their ten­sions, and may add more chains in re­sponse to sea con­di­tions.
