1.13.1. Accessibility. Do not ship containerized loads of hazardous material that are not easily accessible to the
aircrew during flight. Physically stow hazardous materials next to the container opening and position to allow
access while on the aircraft. The aircrew must have visual and physical access to all hazardous materials to mitigate
any hazard posed by an in-flight incident. If there is evidence of a leak, the crew-member can locate the hazard,
determine the extent of the risk, and take appropriate action to get under control or declare an in-flight emergency.
Ensure air transportation personnel have access to the contents for inspection. Provide a key to unescorted, locked
containers to the aircraft commander or designated representative. Ship only the following hazardous materials in
inaccessible containers or tactical shelters:
Recompression vans, support vans, and shelters used by the Underwater Construction Team. Hazardous
items inside these escorted containers have been identified to and approved for shipment byAFMC
Fire extinguishers secured in appropriate holders or brackets, or properly packaged according to this
Vehicles, support equipment, or other mechanical apparatus. Completely drain (residual fuel not to exceed
17 oz) items fueled by a flammable liquid with a flash point at or above 38 degrees C (100 degrees F).
Tightly seal fuel lines and tank to prevent residual fuel leaks. Drain and purge items fueled by a flammable
liquid with a flash point below 38 degrees C (100 degrees F). Installed batteries must be nonspillable type

compatibility of explosives and hazardous materials according to attachment 18. Packaging and handling of nuclear
material not specifically outlined in the above document must meet the requirements of this manual.
1.16. Air Standardization Coordinating Committee (ASCC) Air Standards. Member nations (Australia,
Canada, New Zealand, United Kingdom, and United States) agree in Air Standards 44/9 to accept the categorization
and authorization by participating nations of explosives, radioactive materials, and dangerous cargo for onward
carriage in their own military aircraft. Label shipments according to the ICAO Technical Instructions, IATA
Dangerous Goods Regulation or by nationally approved labels. Certify the shipment meets all requirements for air
