MC-11 Air Compressor

  • By

This item of ground support equipment can provide low pressure compressed air for such tasks as inflating tires and high pressure air for servicing landing gear shock struts. It also was used for starting aircraft engines on Air Defense Command aircraft which had air driven starter systems, such as the F-101, F-102 and F-106. These compressors were in service from the 1960s until the mid-1990s.
