Hello. Does anyone here know how was the drogue parachute secured after deployment? I mean you couldn't drag it all the way to the taxiway as you would collect all of them lights on the taxiways. You just couldnt leave them on the runway too. I searched the net and couldnt find any satisfactory answers. Any help appreciated. Thank you

I'm not sure .... and i'd have to check in the case of the CARAVELLE .... BUT .... "some" of the early jetliners equipped with drag shutes used to "drop these" after landing .... and they'd then be "picked up" by ground support crews.
