AMS assist in B737 recovery

AMS were recently involved in the recovery of a Boeing 737 which had suffered a main landing gear failure. AMS equipment was used exclusively during the process, including airbags to raise the wing and support the aircraft, prior to using our Fuselage Lifting System to position it onto a low-loader.
