Abstract : A discussion is presented of requirments for a low altitude high speed dynamic stability investigation and the aerodynamics involved. Also discussed are the location and facilities of the test site in relation to the investigation. Special test instrumentation, airplane modifications, and flight test techniques are covered. Test results are discussed and figures presented to illustrate the problem encountered on one of the test airplanes. Possible solutions to the problem are presented. (Author)
