January, 2019 Fitting of the Month
This beauty was recently removed from a McDonnell Douglas MD-87 aircraft. You have to love these authentic AN fittings. Who knows how many millions of pressure cycles this one saw over its lifetime, dutifully aiding the landing gear along its way up and down.
This fitting is stamped with the designation, "AP264," which, upon extensive research, appears to cross-reference to the AS designation of AS4410.
