JOINT US/UK VORTEX TRACKING PROGRAM AT HEATHROW INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT. VOLUME II. DATA ANALYSIS
From May 1974 through June 1975, the approach region to runway 28R at Heathrow International Airport was equipped with aircraft wake vortex tracking equipment. The vortices from approximately 13,000 aircraft were monitored along with the attendant meteorological conditions. The joint US/UK project represents a major step in learning how vortices move and die in the terminal environment. Volume II describes the entire project from the workings and locations of the equipment to the analysis of the data.
