Description

Report presenting testing to determine the best way to land the SB2C-1 airplane in calm and rough water and to determine its probable ditching performance. The behavior of the model was determined by making visual observations and by recording the maximum longitudinal decelerations and by taking motion pictures of the ditchings. Results regarding the effect of flaps, attitude, weight, a wing-low landing, effect of simulated damage, effect of tail wheel, ditching aids, and seaway are provided.

Physical Description
