This caster-mounted, one-piece, adjustable-height multi-level dock provides the aircraft tail access. The second level offers ground access with two stairways (located on either side of the dock). This level accommodates the horizontal stabilizer and is equipped with a pneumatic hoist for aft cabin door removal. The first level is accessed from a stairway in the middle of the second level and provides access to the APU. Levels three through five provide access to the rudder section and include mechanically driven sliders in the rudder swing area. Each level is accessed from two fixed stairways (on either side). All inboard edges have adjustable contour panels (sliders) that provide docking clearance. The dock height is adjusted using motor-driven jackscrews.
