Piercing locations for passenger aircraft
Consider removing aircraft window for introduction of ASPN into aircraft interior. Do not attempt to pierce reinforced cockpit windows and be aware that some aircraft, e.g. B747-400 have reinforced windows at the front of the aircraft ( first 3 windows, mid deck, left and right).
Piercing locations for freight aircraft
Consider the effects of introducing large amounts of water into the aircraft structure and the possible effect on stability.
