BRIDGE CONTROLS AND INDICATORS (Contd)
LIFTING EYES -- During launch and retrieval operations, the coupled
bridge is lifted from either end by connecting hook from pallet winch wire
rope to the lifting eye on the end of the bridge launch beam. Open end of hook
must face bridge when connected to lifting eye. The launch beam lifting eyes
are to be used for lifting the bridge using pallet winch only.
ANCHORING EYES -- There is an anchoring eye on the outboard side of
each bridge quarter at the ramp end. Once the bridge is emplaced over a gap,
anchoring straps are connected to the four corners of the bridge at each
anchoring eye. The four anchoring eyes are used for bridge anchorage only.
