... Bunk beds, white, spring-supported, were the trusted companions of thousands of soldiers, especially for cold and wet bivouac nights in the field. For some time these beds are not part of the standard Bundeswehr furniture anymore. A couple of years ago furniture items in the so-called "beech finish"- style were replaced by the colorful "Olympia"- series by the German armed forces. The good old bedsteads are now tied down at the cargo air terminal operation (CATO) of German Air Transport Wing 61 (ATW 61).

On this pallet, the items are stacked evenly as high as the loading ramp permits , which is up to a maximum height of three meters. Subsequently, nets are placed over the cargo items and tied down onto the bottom so that an evenly packed pallet is produced.
