Avro Arrow Flight Analysis Cases

--------

These are some of the flight cases used for analysis at Avro. Mr. Bob Cockfield Sent these to me. I have included them here for those interested. Also, for those of you not use to absolute temperature scales, degrees Rankin (R) are degrees Fahrenheit plus 460 (actually 459.something).

Many Thanks to Bob for submitting this. For those of you who are wondering Just what is an analysis case, consider that when performing the calculations required to design an aircraft, you cannot consider every possible case. Instead, you develop cases that are representative of what the aircraft would experience in different configurations or in different manoeuvres. These are a few of those cases.
