Returning from the Target
After landing with hung ordnance, the aircraft must be dearmed. The area to which aircraft will taxi for
dearming will be determined by local course rules but will generally be located close to the roll-out end of
the duty runway. All safety considerations and procedures for arming also apply to dearming.
In addition to the usual walkaround, check for any weapon-specific problems that may have occurred
airborne. Inspect the pylons, bomb rack(s) and wing undersurfaces for evidence of wing-to-bomb
collision. Check the tail surfaces, especially leading edges, for evidence of damage from loose particles.
