To monitor the interaction between aircraft motion and pilot control inputs during such unusual happenings as upsets caused by turbulence and collision-avoidance type of maneuvers, Unusual Events Recording Systems UERS were installed in three jet transports--a Boeing 707, 727, and 737--operated by two major airlines in scheduled passenger-carrying flights. A total of 2088 hours of usable data recorded between September 1969 and April 1971 were presented in Interim Report FAA-RD-71-69. Then the recording program was modified and extended to record additional Instrument Landing System ILS parameters and ground data on the Boeing 737 during 6 months of operation. Between October 1971 and April 1972, 503 hours of data were recorded on 725 flights.
