Abstract:

The toxic exhaust products of machine guns and rockets fired from armed helicopters can create a hazard for the crew. A toxic hazard evaluation was carried out with the UH-1B armed helicopter. Special methods were used to measure rapidly changing levels of carbon monoxide in the helicopter during actual flight testing. The exposure to metallic particles was also recorded.
