INFLIGHT FUEL TANK TEMPERATURE SURVEY DATA

Statistical summaries of the fuel and air temperature data for twelve different routes and for different aircraft models (B747, B707, DC-10 and DC-8), are given. The minimum fuel, total air and static air temperature expected for a 0.3% probability were summarized in table form. Minimum fuel temperature extremes agreed with calculated predictions and the minimum fuel temperatrue did not necessarily equal the minimum total air temperature even for extreme weather, long range flights.
