Abstract : A cargo handling system having three major components: (1) a plurality of loading jack assemblies, (2) a plurality of stationary jack assemblies, and (3) a tow-bar. The loading jack assemblies are of a novel construction so as to be removably mounted upon a cargo to be loaded or unloaded from the cargo bay of an aircraft or if desired onto a flat bed trailer truck. During the loading and unloading procedure a plurality of uniquely constructed stationary jack assemblies are utilized in conjunction with the loading jack assemblies so as to aid in the loading and unloading operation. By use of the combination of removable loading jack assemblies and stationary jack assemblies, cargo can be quickly loaded and unloaded into and from a minimum of space.
