Clenched fist is used in some industries. Hand starts open, with fingers splayed, then made into a fist to bring to a smooth stop.




Concur.

I seem to remember it as a signal to a squad to stop, or hold position. Not so much on "the TARMAC". :-)

Jeff, according to the current infantry manual of hand signals, the clenched
fist means FREEZE. Presenting the palm, with fingers up, means STOP.

Still don't know if airlines use a powerback from the gate anymore.

I never liked it and the hand signals were different and hard to follow if you were going backwards with your feet on the floor and hand on the nose wheel steering and the other on the reverse throttles-and turning backwards. For me, only in the B-727.

Regards,

Dux

Nor do I, have no idea. OTOH, must say tho that I liked it very well, was able to do it with only two running on the 72s. But powerbacks sure required a lot of trust in the wingwalkers!

Try backing tail-over-water on an aircraft carrier at night!

Saw something similar on my visit to the TR back in '94. Not at night, but they were taxiing landed f-14's to the edge of the deck and turning them around. The nose gear is about under the pilot's butt, so he had nothing in front of him but water, and was looking back at a 19-yo kid waving flags...trust.
