Abstract : U. S. Air Force environmental tests of the Model F-4C airplane in the Climatic Hangar were monitored. The airplane is a two place (tandem), supersonic, long range, all-weather fighter-bomber powered by two J79-GE-15 singlerotor, axial-flow, variable stator turbojet engines with afterburners. The airplane was tested by the Air Force under controlled environmental temperature conditions from 120 F down to and including -65 F. The airplane was positioned on jacks and tied down for high power engine operation. Functional tests of various systems were conducted at all test temperatures. JP-4 fuel was used throughout the tests. (Author)
