Abstract:

In a fifth part of a continuing T-38 Service Loads Recording Program SLRP to cover the period from 1 June 1970 through 31 December 1971, 4265 hours of VGH data were recorded by AA24U-10 magnetic tape recording systems installed in twenty-eight T-38 aircraft 22 fleet and 6 lead-the-force T-38s operating from Williams, Reese, and Moody Air Force Bases. As in previous reports, the data presentation includes curves showing normal load factor nz exceedances above each nz level per thousand flight hours. Only one nz exceeded 7.8 design limit is 7.33, and the comparison of the exceedance curves for the current and previous programs substantiated that the T-38 nz spectrum had remained unchanged during the T-38 SLRP.
