Abstract:

This report is a primer or tutorial on the angular motion of ground objects relative to level-flying aircraft. Both qualitative and quantitative description is used. Equations are derived in detail for angular relationships and for angular velocities in alpha, azimuth, and declination. Terms are defined and included are tables, graphs and worked out examples and problems. Problems in low-altitude flight, dynamic visual acuity, apparent motion, and angular velocities at aircraft windows are discussed.
