distance possible. Radioactive yellow II and yellow III material must be separated by a minimum of 2
pallet positions (176 in) at all times while on the aircraft. If the total transport index of all packages on the
aircraft exceeds 50, the separation distance between the surfaces of the radioactive materials packages and
the surfaces bounding the space occupied by persons or animals must be at least 9 meters (30 feet).
Do not offer Type B(M) packages for transportation on passenger-carrying aircraft.
