It was determined that mixtures of ice crystals and other precipitation commonly found in the core of thunderstorms at high altitudes constitute an extreme operating hazard to F-102 aircraft. The hazard can be relieved to a large extent by the installation and use of a continuous ignition system. It is recommended that the hard core or main precipitation area of the storm be avoided.
