Watch where you tread!
Mechanics, always pay attention where your feet, rear and hands go when working on your AH-64.
For example, the APU cover provides just a little protection for the auxiliary power unit (APU). But as tempting as it may be, the cover is not a chair, a work stand or a step. It's just a cover for protecting the APU.
Standing, sitting or stepping on the cover will break it. The cover can't handle your weight. Worse, a cracked APU cover can rub against an APU fuel line over time and cause a fuel leak. That's not good!
So, when you're walking on the catwalk area and working around the APU cover, think of the cover as part of the APU, not part of your bird's airframe. And stay off it!
