  • Content Description: "This paper contains a description of the method of measuring the moments of inertia of full scale airplanes as practiced by the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics at the Langley Memorial Aeronautical Laboratory. The method, while not at all new, is published for the information and guidance of others who may desire to make similar measurements. The paper includes as an appendix the computations for the moments of inertia of 0-2 airplane" (p. 1).
