Abstract
An airplane trail stand tipped over, resulting in the death of a cargo handler at a New Jersey ariport. the worker was towing the tail stand with a cargo tug vehicle. the support pad of the tail stand's central stabilizer, which was left in the down position, caught the edge of a slightly raised manhole cover. This caused the 1,750-pound tail stand to tip forward and strike the cargo handler, pinning him to the steering wheel of the tug. What can be done to prevent this from happening again?
