p-610 AIRPLANES WITHIN THUNDRTiORE
JULY 22, 1946 TO JULY 23, 1946
AT ORIANDO, FLORIDA
By H. B. Tolefson
The results obtained from measurements of gust and draft
velocities within thunderstorms for the period. July 22, 1946
to July 23, 1946 at Orlando, Florida, are presented herein. These
data are summarized in tables I and II, respectively, and are of the
type presented in reference 1 for previous flights.
Inspection of photo-observer records for the flights
that no data on ambient air temperature variations within
storms were obtained. -
