Abstract : In May of 1969, the NAE T-33 participated in a co-operative program of storm turbulence measurement. During the program, the T-33 made several thunderstorm penetrations in the vicinity of Tinker Air Force Base, Oklahoma. The aim of the program was to explore turbulence characteristics in and near thunderstorms and to correlate aircraft turbulence measurements with a ground-based radar. Data recorded by the T-33 are used to compute true gust velocity time histories and to determine the variation in mean square gust velocities during the storm penetrations. (Author)
