Padeyes on the landing gear.

Would you believe that they even went so far as to build padeyes into the landing gear feet so that someone on the surface could clip a safety line to them to keep from being carried away by stormy weather, or otherwise secure a piece of equipment? See the brass rectangular fittings embedded in the sides of the foot prop? There are three: one is horizontal; the other two are vertical. Amazing detail!
