RC-135 Reconnaissance Phase Style Maintenance Platform
The Boeing RC-135 Reconnaissance Aircraft Maintenance Platform was designed with direct input from RC-135 Reconnaissance service technicians. Featuring a compact footprint and high strength lightweight aluminum construction, the RC-135 Reconnaissance platform conforms to, meets and exceeds OSHA requirements. The platform offers full fall protection and enhanced worker safety without obstructing the maintenance process. This platform is easily mobile when necessary and securely locked in place during maintenance procedures.
The Boeing RC-135 Reconnaissance Maintenance Platform’s load rating is confirmed using finite element analysis method. RC-135 Reconnaissance Phase Maintenance Platforms are designed for easy maneuverability and can be separated from the other components for hanger/facility replacement storage.
FlexDecks Maintenance Stands are constructed from light weight, high-strength structural grade 6061 aluminum and self-draining, anti-slip and anti-bounce 5052 aluminum Safety Treads which are OSHA compliant, omni directional and self-correcting.
