P-3 intake covers.
A letter to the editor in the spring 2003 issue spoke of a product made by Bruce Covers that might help solve a fall hazard reported in the fall 2002 issue (rotting straps that injure Sailors) PEOASWASM. Patuxent River MD issued 281319Z OCT 03, which was a response to a different injury with a similar causal factor. PMA-190's bottom line: Do not use the Bruce covers. Their message says to use only the authorized covers found in NAVAIR 01-75PAC-4-10, P-3 Organizational Peculiar Support Equipment, until new ones are designed and available.
