Abstract:

This Note gives the results of experiments carried out with 1000 lb Mk.10 bombs at R.A.F. Idris, August-September, 1962. Values are given for the temperatures recorded on and within bombs stored in full sunlight. It is inferred that there is little danger of the filling melting even under the worst tropical conditions. Results of flight trials confirm the tables of speed restrictions previously issued R.A.E. Tech. Note No. Arm 704 for external carriage of V.T. fuze No.906 and 1000 lb bombs. Some information is given regarding the met. conditions at Idris during the period of the trials.
