What does Airplanes do during technical stop?

Don't give me the answer saying that "oh, they park at the gates or taxiway, of course".

A technical stop is just that...a stop for technical reasons. They are not stops where passengers or cargo get on or off. Usually, fuel stops, but another somewhat common reason is to get a new crew to satisfy crew rest requirements.

A technical stop is made only to refuel/service the aircraft or, unusually for crew rest, passengers and cargo
do not disembark/unload.

For example some Asian carriers used to fly from NY to Tokyo
with a tech stop in Anchorage, this is to refuel, they would not be permitted to offload pax in Anc.

The best contribution to safety is a competent Pilot.

Actually, ANC has a terminal just for this purpose. The pax are offloaded while the plane is serviced, but they are not allowed outside. The terminal, in itself, sits in the middle of the ramp, with no public access to Anchorage itself.
