Abstract:

This report presents the results of field test measurements to define the noise produced on the ground by military, fixed wing aircraft during controlled level flyovers and ground runups. For flight conditions, data are presented in terms of various acoustic measures over the range 200-25,000 feet minimum slant distance to the aircraft. For ground runups, data are presented as a function of angle and distance to the aircraft. All of the data are normalized to standard acoustic reference conditions of 59 deg. F temperature and 70 relative humidity. Noise data are presented in this Volume 3 for the following aircraft A-7D, E A-10A A-37B F-4C, D, E, F F-5A, B F-5E, F F-15A F-16A F-104C, D, G F-111A, E F-111D, and F-111F.
