Abstract : Four basic evacuation tests were performed on a crashed L-1649 in Phoenix, Arizona, to document problem areas, passenger reaction, emergency lighting, slope of flooring and other items affecting passenger egress. Two day and two night tests were run with different crews and passengers for each. The tests were designed to observe the reactions of the crews and passengers under different emergency conditions rather than to compare the results of one test with another. Data were collected by tape recordings, motion picture film, and questionnaires. Observations were recorded. The results are presented in the report. (Author)
