When the hydrazine is released it creates a chemical reaction that allows the pilot to manually maneuver the aircraft in order to land it safely. The two-man team taught seven Chilean fuel Airmen how to properly assemble, operate and maintain their new hydrazine servicing stand. The stand is used to refuel and defuel, purge, and prepare a shipment of hydrazine tanks.
